Leaders-for-a-Day: Tomorrow's leaders share their expectations

Ahead of Leaders-for-a-Day tomorrow, participating JA alumni and ESP-holders share their expectations before they meet and follow their top leaders. 


Growing up I understood that almost everyone needs a mentor in order to be successful no matter the field he/she is striving in. Leader for a Day offers several unique experiences, one of which is valued a lot - mentoring and sharing experiences. In this fast pacing world young people are intimidated by many factors and we as the next generation would benefit the most by connecting with people who have already been in the same field. 



My name is Arnaud, I am 17 years old and living in Brussels since 2000. My father is German and my mother is French, so I grew up in a European environment. I am currently studying at the French School for my Baccalaureate in the scientific section. Consequently, I would like to undertake a general engineering degree, to be able in a future time to manage projects in the field of sustainable development and energy. 



At the moment I am a student at the Slovak University of Agriculture in Nitra. My field of study is International business with agrarian commodities, but I still remember the year when we started working in our students company as if it was yesterday...

We heard about it so many good thing and we were all very excited about it. We participated in Hyundai Skills for the Future competition. 



Hi everybody, my name is Davide Puleo, I’m an Italian student and I live in Palermo.

In the lines below, I’ll share with you how I feel at the moment and what are my thoughts and my expectations before going to Brussels next Thursday, joining the activity “Leaders for a day”(L4D).

But first of all, let’s talk about me and my interests.

I’m presently attending the last year of the High School in Maths and Science section. I like learning foreign languages, in fact I’ve studied French, German and I went twice to England to improve my English. 



 Approximately a year ago, our student company started thanks to JA Company. At that time, all I had was knowledge. I didn’t know what to expect. I was just trying to participate as much as possible so that I could get at least some experience. We created a name and set our goals, then we had a first school meeting where we introduced our company and basically we went step by step and experienced every important moment in our company as a team. We became more creative, cooperative, representative. I saw that on my classmates, we really did better and better everyday and so my opinion about business completely changed.
