My freshman year in SPA Leadership was a moment of growth and reflection for me personally and as a leader. I took a leave of absence during the second semester, but still worked with my group to raise money for Mosaic, an organization that provides services to refugees, and educate our peers about what we had learned. Personally, I learned how to manage the expectations of my group in order to complete our project. In terms of content, I learned about the factors influencing migration, and refugee mental health. I also learned about the infrastructure that shapes administration of social services for refugees, and how to interact with these systems.
