1. Of all the summer programs available, why did you choose CLTC?
I chose CLTC because I think that it's the program that can develop my leadership skills in a way that can fit my chapter and region the best. I served on chapter board for the first time this year but I don't think I did the best job that I could have done, so I hope that CLTC will help prepare me to serve my chapter better in the coming programming year.
2. What do you think you’ll learn there?
I think (and hope) that I'll be able to learn more about what it truly means to be a leader in BBYO. I've only been a member for a little over a year, so I've led a couple of chapter and regional programs, but I don't think I have the "spark" that can command respect and send a meaningful message when I'm trying to lead something just yet, and hopefully this experience will help me to acquire that spark.
3. What session/location?
CLTC 4, Bethany WV baby!
4. If you had to make up new words for the acronym CLTC so that it represented what CLTC means to you, what would you make it?
CLTC - Creating Leaders among Teens across the Country (sorry, is that cheating?). I've had quite a few friends in my region who have attended CLTC, and they have spoke both of how they have truly become leaders thanks to this experience and how they have met teens from all across America who share their passion, devotion, and dedication to BBYO, and I think that these two sentiments are perfectly embodied in this acronym.
