The 2018 International Leadership Conference (ILC) was my first of hopefully many ILC experiences! My experience at ILC is one that I will cherish forever! My four favorite aspects of ILC are competing at the international level in Health Career Photography, pin trading with people from around the world, interacting with members from Indiana HOSA, and growing closer with my state executive team!
Competing on the international level was very rewarding! I loved meeting other competitors and connecting with peers with the same interest as me! It was a great and exciting stepping stone for my photography journey!
Pin trading was such an amazing way to network with HOSA members from around the world! I'm grateful to say I'm still in touch with many members as far as Puerto Rico and Hawaii! I created friendships that will last not only throughout my HOSA journey but for a lifetime!
I loved getting to know more Indiana members and seeing how ILC had impacted them throughout the week! I am excited to see the members again, along with all other members at Indiana's leadership conferences!
Finally, growing closer and bonding with my state executive team was incredible! I believe that you can very stop growing as a team, so I look forward to continuing growing as a team throughout this next year!
As you can see ILC has impacted me greatly and I can't wait to see what the future holds!
