My prayer goes to the Regis University family in the US and around the World. You have opened our eyes and made us see the light. I thank you all in the name of God though the words is repeated here, is always a blessing to me because without God nothing will be possible. You taught us about the Jesuit Education which has inspired me a lot and it has changed my life compare to when I first step my feet to this University. I did not know that anybody can be a leader but when I read the book of Heroic Leadership, I truly understand that leaders emerge as leaders do including me. I have understood that if somebody wants to become a leader, he or she must follow the four pillars of success in leadership which included self-awareness, ingenuity, love, heroism. These pillars have changed my life and I will use them as my strong weapons throughout my life. Not forgetting my favorite and immediate sponsorer, Mary McFarland for her cooperation and directives since the course began. God bless her and her family. I would finally say, thank you all in Christ name “Amen”.…………………….

It sounds like this is the kind of work I want to do at this stage in my life. I am from Kenya and would love to work at the Kakuma camp as the Community Service Learning Track Facilitator. I know where Kakuma is located because Turkana is the place I taught for eight years.

Downright inspirational! I watched every video. Your project is in my prayers. The marketer in me suggests you provide a "call to action". What can I do to help? Prayers in the interim! Much peace and many blessings to you this Thanksgiving. Tina Facca Asst. Professor of Marketing John Carroll University Cleveland Ohio
