The Emerging Leaders Institute not only increased my confidence in leadership, it also showed me that hard work and opportunity create success. Before ELI, I always thought that only very lucky individuals got to choose their career paths. My ELI mentor, Gretchen Alarcon, and now fellow advisor at Stanford University Alpha Phi, is the perfect example of what it means to be a leader and I'm so fortunate to have her as a friend and mentor. Not only has Alpha Phi Foundation helped me to grow my leadership skills, but the Foundation provided me with a scholarship during a very financially difficult time in my life. Because of this, I was able to finance an LSAT Preparation Course that I otherwise would not have had the opportunity to purchase.
