Aim and Objective
Our aim to attend the LeadAmerica conference was to “Explore” our future path, “Discover” what inspires us most, while learning valuable skills to help us “Achieve” academic, professional and personal success. The college and career skill development included:-

* Increasing college knowledge: how the colleges and universities operate, through college experience. * Developing critical academic behaviors for success: we learnt to apply some key strategies for success in the academic years for example time management, communication, self-awareness and team building. * Developing cognitive strategies: through simulations and workshops that focused on thinking and problem solving.

Benefits of the LeadAmerica Conference
* Confidence: LeadAmerica is designed in such a way that student is empowered to be responsive and achieve their full potential. * Purpose: students come to know their strengths and weaknesses and began to build a vision for their future career and life.

Procedure for LeadAmerica conference and Visa.
Our LeadAmerica process started in a parents-teacher meeting where a LeadAmerica counselor introduced our parents about the conferences held in world best universities like Stanford, Babson, UC, etc. After the meeting got over the school nominated the students who were eligible to go for the conference after a week the students get their nomination letters which included a certificate of recognition, an invitation letter and an information letter for parents. Then we had to decide whether to go for the conference or not. After we decided going we had to fill an application letter which asked for the personal information and insurance. Then the application letter was supposed to be sent to the LeadAmerica staff and when our letter gets confirmed we get a letter for visa counselor for granting us the visa for USA. Then we had to take an interview date and we had to go to Mumbai for the interview and after getting the visa we are suppose to fill some of the forms. After all the forms are filled up we just need to pack our bags and leave for USA.
