BPA has done so much for me in the time I’ve been involved and I want to do the same for others. I have grown in many areas that are essential to life, such as public speaking, leadership, and teamwork. Everyone is a leader in their own way and being in BPA has helped me to become a better leader. I would like to become National Officer so that I can help all members throughout the nation bring out their inner leader.”
