Siegfried Entrepreneurial Leadership Fellows Program

The Siegfried Entrepreneurial Leadership Fellows has provided me with opportunities to explore and delve deeper into my own leadership in a supportive environment of fellow students and mentors. Being a part of this program has also expanded my perspective on leadership and what it means to be a true leader.
