Study of the U.S. Institutes for Student Leaders
Walis Elhout’s participation in the Study of the U.S. Institute for Student Leaders on Civic Engagement at Bard College proved to be a transformative experience, one that has revolutionized his work greatly since returning home to Gaza.
“The support and encouragement I felt during my SUSI program made me a bolder and more confident individual. Every day I try to live like a leader, letting my life be worthy of emulation and a good example to others.”
“Sometimes I think I did not know myself enough before this exchange. I challenged myself and pushed my limits every day of the program, and it was all worth it because I fully understood then what I was capable of.”
