A: The Bank of America Student Leader Summit was an amazing time, and I don't think I'll ever experience anything like it again. I had the privilege to be a part of the group of [more than 200] student leaders who came from all over the country. I met people from all different backgrounds, experiences, and walks of life — the diversity was real. Although we were all so different, our common desire and passion to serve, inspire, and change brought us together, and as cliché as it sounds, we became one big family. I've never met more well-rounded, intelligent, passionate, fun-loving people in my life! It was a once in a life time experience that I'll never forget. I had the opportunity to meet with state representatives on Capitol Hill, and discuss projects that I've been working on in my community and how they can help. I had the chance to speak to a panel of leaders who work in the nonprofit sector (of which Laura Bush was a part) and was inspired by many motivational speakers who came to the summit — this is just a snapshot of all the wonderful experiences I had at this summit. I learned that "if it is to be, it is up to me"—in other words, it's my responsibility to take action and to be the change in my community, rather than wait on others to do so. Other than the amazing hotel food I got to eat during the conference, I will miss the students, my roommate and all the amazing friends I made most of all.
