“The YELP fellowship has helped me learn new tricks to being an effective leader and know our journey into leadership is shaped by one’s own traits and character. There is no universal definition of success and it’s important to celebrate achievements even if they are small as you continue to pursue your life’s goals. Success is defined by what are your life’s objectives and what they intend to achieve.”
