What does being a leader mean for you?

“Psi Chi members and leaders in the past not only coped with change, but they helped to direct it as you will do. Because of your aspiration and achievement of excellence, you are encouraging and stimulating others to reach beyond mediocrity, which in turn leads to change in the way people behave and feel about themselves and others. Your challenge today is to build on this legacy and to expand your influence in advancing change for the betterment of people around the world.”
