Success Stories

I can clearly express that my entire experience with the NSLS was amazing and life-changing. This organization motivated me to get better grades during my college career and hold myself to a higher standard than I had in the past.

Experiencing how the NSLS improved my leadership skills made me hungry for more. I decided to partake in the organization’s ADVANCE leadership certification, which helped me put my new leadership skills into practice. Upon completion of the ADVANCE leadership certification, I was finally ready to tackle the last stage in my leadership journey with the NSLS; the EXECUTIVE leadership certificate. I’m currently enrolled in the EXECUTIVE leadership certification and am learning how to “live” with a leadership mindset in all that I do.The NSLS has given me the skillset to ask the important questions and stand among the top ranks of my peers. I’m proud to be part of an organization that has prepared me to give back to my community and is building leaders who make a better world.
