'I was interested in the Trinity Leadership Challenge as the idea of working with a group of my peers on a serious project with minimal didacticism from our mentors and with the reward of trekking the Kokoda Trail at the end greatly appealed to me. I see it as a great opportunity for responsible independence and reflection as well as providing a real scenario team organisational challenge readying us for future, professional coalitions in the real world. For myself personally I think the Trinity Leadership Challenge will improve my organisation skills and my ability to work productively and beneficially in a team as well as test my commitment. Mostly, however, I am looking forward to maturing and growing with a great group of my peers and forging mutual yet individualised leadership resolves.'
