Being part of the Tepeyac Leadership Initiative showed me that Catholic faith, morals, and values can be put into practice amidst a secular setting and that one’s faith is not incompatible with the duties of life. Since starting the program, I have been increasingly placed in positions of leadership and the foundation has been set firmly by the TLI program. To have been part of this program as a young professional from Belize was exciting and illuminating and I’m grateful that the TLI program has an international reach. I believe that others can benefit from this program as I did. Therefore, my pledge for the next two years is that I will encourage at least one Belizean professional to be part of the TLI program.
