Cromwell attends National Student Leadership Forum

After an incredible four days in Canberra, I have come back to Uni with so many take aways from the National Student Leadership Forum. Some of my highlights were having the pleasure to meet Mr Peter Costello, Mr Mike Baird, The Hon Brendon Nelson, The Hon Jason Claire, Dr Munjed Al Muderis and Mr Andrew Lamming just to name a few. As one of the delegates for Cromwell College, it was a pleasure to represent the College and Queensland in the nation’s capital. The opportunity to collaborate and reflect on the core values which underpin power and influence has been a pivotal milestone in discovering the type of leader I want to be. The forum has a unique focus on encouraging delegates to discover the values which underpin leading in the service of others, something which is becoming increasingly rare in the fast-paced world we live in. 

Being in Parliament House at the moment of a leadership challenge was certainly an exciting and insightful opportunity. Despite a great deal of negative press on the matter, I felt a sense of pride while in Canberra that a change in leadership for Australia does not result in violence and war which is the reality for some other nations. We are blessed to have such a peaceful political culture and a stable democracy, and for this, I am a very proud Australian.
