Meet Our ECCEL Alums

“Before ECCEL …I had a negative idea of leadership. But now, I know leadership is so much more. Good leadership is having a vision…a goal that is desired to be accomplished by both the leader and the leader’s partners. Not only having a vision but also getting others excited and passionate about the shared vision. Now that I have been through ECCEL, I have become inspired to be more open to sharing my ideas, opinions and beliefs.”

“ECCEL was able to teach me and discover many things about myself that I had known I was capable of doing. I’ve always believed in myself and in setting up goals. However, compared to the Fall, I am now more determined about HOW I can achieve my goals”. 

Asha, SUNY Rockland

ECCEL 2016

“I am no longer afraid to express how I feel. I have always been open to listen to others and their ideas but I never knew before how to combine all of them. Before when a problem came up that was the end; now finding solutions to the problems is a new starting point. I knew WHAT a leader was but I never knew HOW to become a leader.”
