  • Hands-on Approach


My name is Jayden Sutliff. I am an 8th grader attending Safety Harbor Middle School. Over this last year, I was selected to attend a leadership conference in Washington D.C. I had a great time and was able to see several of the monuments and memorials there and was also able to listen to a speaker talk about leadership. When the conference was finished, my parents asked me to reflect on my experience. I told them that while I had a good time, there was something missing. I explained to them some things that could be done to improve a student’s experience. I would have liked to have had the opportunity to listen to more speakers discuss leadership, motivation, and things that would benefit me now as well as later in life. It would also be an improvement to have more of a hands-on experience with performance-based activities. My parents and I talked for the rest of our trip home and I finally asked them if they would help me create this experience that I wish I would have had. The vision I have is to impact other young people like me and realize that if I can make a difference in other students, then my dream will be fulfilled.
