'Trinity has provided me with outstanding opportunities for self-development, best exemplified by this leadership program. I view the program as a fantastic opportunity to build upon my knowledge of leadership and how best to work in differing roles in a team setting, a life skill which will be invaluable in a career in business. I am looking forward to the intensity of the program, both mentally and physically, and the accompanying challenge it will impose in trying to juggle co-curricular and academic commitments. Ultimately, though, it provides an opportunity to further develop my time management, organisational and teamwork skills, as well as gain a greater appreciation for Australian wartime history.'
