“The power to change”

How can you as one person make a difference? Your global influence can be measured by the positive changes you envision for individuals, groups of people, or a community. Mahatama Gandhi once said “In a gentle way, you can shake the world.” With this Webster Leiden Global Citizen Scholarship, we would like to see how you can inspire and make a change!

Here are some guiding questions:

  • If you have the power to change one thing in the world, what would you change?
  • How would you change your community in a positive way?
  • How can your involvement in your school or community make an impact?
