Lesson Learned: ICC has taught me so many valuable skills in communication, organization, and what it means to be a leader. Especially being a leader and mentor to people that are younger than me. Even though it may seem tedious at first, I have also learned that all the hard work that we do from YSG 1 all the way up to YSG 3 does pay off, because it only leads to more opportunities in the future to be better communicators for Christ.

Lesson Learned: My favorite thing about ICC is the chapter meetings. I get to hang out with friends, but I also learn so many valuable lessons that I can use in my daily life like the color temperaments. Understanding how to speak to others in ways that build them up instead of tearing them down is so important. I have also been able to share what I have learned in ICC with the other students at my school and one even ended up joining our chapter. I have much more confidence than I had at the beginning of ICC, and I'm so thankful for the mentoring that I have gotten in learning how to use my voice for influence to bring God glory.

Lesson Learned: My favorite thing about ICC is the friends I have gained. When I first started ICC, I was nervous and tended to mumble through my speeches. Now, I feel much more confident and able to clearly enunciate my words. I'm thankful for each platform I have been on as each and every one is an opportunity to share Christ.

Lesson Learned: By participating in the Young Speakers Guild, I have learned so many important and practical skills that I have applied to my daily life. However, the most prominent take away experienced was how much public speaking helped boost my confidence. Before public speaking, I was a massive introvert who was very shy, and I did not initiate conversations with many people. Now, I love meeting new people and speaking on new platforms. Through the YSG Training Series, I have learned to be a both a more influential speaker and better listener.

Lesson Learned: I learned to be responsible with my assignments and learned to finish my work ahead of time. Obviously, I did not immediately become responsible, but it took a lot of trial and error before I finally learned responsibility.
