I came to know the APT Leadership Program is one of the best and excellent programs in Afghanistan and I know APT is a very good environment for youth to develop their skills. It would be like a privilege for youth to engage in this program and it will help them to enhance their skills and enrich their knowledge. Besides, it gives the right platform and great opportunity for youth to develop, learn, grow, and to achieve their career goals. I am writing to thank APT for its infinite contribution to help us learn new skills, experience, and knowledge. Indeed, it is a great program all across Afghanistan and it is very useful for youths.

During the leadership program with APT, we had multiple virtual meetings with significant foreign figures, with whom we interacted and communicated about diverse leadership topics. Even though our program and meetings, due to the lockdown, were conducted virtually, it was a wonderful and fertile experience for me. In short, what I value more than any other merits of this leadership program is that it provided us with an opportunity to meet and become acquainted with each other as classmates and like-minded people who all, in my opinion, have the potential and capacity of becoming the future leaders of this society. Even more, when our class was assigned with "social project", I was inspired and delighted by the idea and plan we came up with, which was to help and support families that are unable to afford their children’s educational expenses.

When I joined APT Spring Leadership Course, I felt over joy. Afterward, when the course started I was enthusiastic to participate in each session. Our leadership course has started with full energy. During the course; however, all our sessions were online because of COVID-19, we have made good friendships with our classmates and learned a lot from each other. This was the time that the entire world was Quarantine, but we had our sessions active and participated in the sessions with great zeal. During these online sessions, we have met talented professors and instructors, for instance, Arley Loewen. Honestly speaking, we learned a lot about leadership from our respected instructors for which we will always owe them.

I came to know about the Leadership Development Course of APT in early 2020. I was very interested to attend it; therefore, I applied for it and got selected. During the course, I learned various points about leadership, its fundamentals and styles. Though our classes were conducted online, I made some very nice friends from different backgrounds and leadership potential. Besides, we met talented instructors during our online sessions. Since they were from different countries such as, US, Canada, and Afghanistan, we came to know what leader is from their perspectives and what do they think about the Afghan people. Overall, our leadership course was awesome.

I was interested in leadership, and one of my goals was joining the leadership class of APT. Fortunately, I could join this class. During my classes at APT, I learned many things about leadership. It has been a great pleasure for me to be a student of this class. Before joining the leadership class, I had concerns about my ability to whether I can be a great leader in the future or not? Or am I able to lead a team? But after joining this class my self-confidence and my knowledge regarding leadership increased, and I understood that I can be a leader in my life. I’m thankful to APT and our instructors who helped us to be a step closer to our goals.

APT’s leadership program is a very nice opportunity for the young generation. I learned from this program how to organize a community to reach a shared goal, to motivate others to complete a series of tasks according to a pre-planned timeline, team building, risk-taking, creativity, and the ability to teach and mentor. Additionally, I learned that leadership is not just one skill but rather a combination of several different skills. Furthermore, I found a way to be an effective leader. An effective leader increases employee engagement, creates a positive environment and helps his/her team.

As an active citizen, I have always wondered how can I better fulfill my responsibility towards my nation and society where I live in and after getting a good education and gaining more academic knowledge, I came to notice that we have to invest on our leadership skills because it is an important element for bringing positive community and society changes. Fortunately, I read about the Leadership Program offered by APT and thereby applied for it. The Program was organized online due to the occurrence of the novel coronavirus which was based on the core belief that leadership is a foundational skill that can be applied to improve all elements of society, be it social, political, professional, economical, or cultural. I learned about different communication theories, teamwork, creative thinking, talking with new people that was amazing as we explored diversity, and built our confidence.

Leadership is a series of life, because of that everyone needs to learn leadership in his or her life. Fortunately, I had the opportunity of joining APT’s Spring Leadership Development Course. The things that I learned during the two months were wonderful achievements that I have ever experienced. This course introduced me to know the real meaning of magnanimity, influence, being honorable, giving respect, listening to others, being trusted, supporting people, and so on. In this course, I learned how to be valiant in my position and how to show bravery in my words and my behaviors. The APT leadership course gives me the chance to make new friends and meet different personalities. Although, because of coronavirus we did not have the sessions physically, our sessions were friendly and awesome.
