“Participating in the R2L Next Gen program has exposed me to a multitude of viewpoints and opinions on current political issues. Not only was I expected to defend my views, but I was also challenged to consider the other side of every issue. This experience showed me the wide range of jobs and positions available in the field of politics. I can now say that I see myself as a leader in my local community, as well as at the national level.”
