“The biggest thing I hope they learn this week is the confidence. They should instill confidence in everything that they do,” Daryl Worley, Baltimore Ravens.
The goal of this year's First Tee Game Changers Academy was to create thought-provoking discussions & inspiring workshops. Sydney Rogers had the opportunity to participate in the event at Villanova University last week. She absolutely enjoyed the opportunity to meet other First Tee participants from all over the country while participating in team building activities in the great outdoors like kayaking and a ropes course. Her favorite workshop was led by some members of the Amazon leadership team because they shared some of the strategies that made them a game changer in business.
The event also featured panelists from various backgrounds sharing their perspective on diversity. Perspectives that Sydney did not always embrace as complete truth but she was able to confidently articulate her point of view with others. It is not easy to take an opposing viewpoint on how to be a game changer but the experience motivated her to remain firm in her convictions.
