Leadership Profile: Cory Schneider
My name is Cory Schneider and I want to tell you why I love Best Buddies. Last summer I got to go to the Best Buddies Leadership Conference at Indiana University as an Ambassador. One thing that inspired me was hearing people’s speeches at the conference. After hearing their stories, I was inspired to be a leader.
Best Buddies is important in my life because it gives me the opportunity to get involved and meet new people. The Leadership Conference gave me a chance to be independent, develop new friendships and accomplish my goals. My main goal is to become a leader and inspire others just like how I was inspired.
One thing that helps me become a leader is my love for others. Talking with my friends makes me happy and their friendships mean a lot to me. When I think about others who don’t have these friendship, it makes me sad. No one has to be lonely. I am a leader because I lead by my example of friendship. I am a loving person who is always nice to other people, enjoys making new friends, and shoes others what it means to be a good friend. I am so excited to go to Leadership Conference again this year!
