Camp CEO was only a week, but I learned more in that one week than I had in my fifteen years of learning. Camp taught me to try new things and not to be afraid of being different, for it is those who are different that are successful in life. I got to meet wonderful women who had accomplished so much in their lives and were willing to help me do the same. But most of all, Camp CEO gave me new found confidence and leadership skills that I will take with me throughout my life.
Camp taught me that I should not be afraid to try new things for only positives could come out of my experiences. Since attending Camp CEO, I have joined a newspaper that is distributed to over 200 schools where people will be reading my writing. Before camp I was unsure if I wanted to write, because it was something out of my comfort zone. Camp CEO helped me to see that taking chances in life and trying different activities is something that I should not be afraid of because I will only become a better person. It helped me to expand my horizons and branch out into the world.
Camp CEO put in my path powerful and influential women who make a difference in the world. During that week, and even after, I have been able to get to meet powerful business women, successful doctors, and women who were just like me with dreams and goals of their own. They each taught me a lesson of their own and gave me priceless advice that I can take me with me throughout my life. I gained new knowledge in the business world and have gotten an idea of who I want to be when I am older. Camp CEO has taught me to be the woman I want to be, and I met wonderful women who helped me with my dreams.
Camp CEO gave me confidence and leadership skills that will help me today and forever. It has helped me to speak up for what I believe in and have the confidence to take action. I have become a leader in my community and have started to work on my gold award. Camp has given me the confidence to speak in front of my town’s council and to organize a marathon in my town to raise money for breast cancer. It helped me to be confident and a leader in the world.
Camp CEO is an experience of a lifetime. Without Camp CEO, I feel that I would not be the person I am today. I strongly urge girls to partake in Camp CEO, which encourages them to change the world for the better by giving them new skills and knowledge; it instills confidence within them. Camp taught me so much about the world and has helped me discover myself. I hope all girls have the chance to participate in this life-changing experience.
