One Young World Coordinating Ambassador for Canada, Martina Buchal, has recently announced her latest project entitled “The Empowered Me.” This goal of this project is to create a personalized guide for young leaders to expand their skills and knowledge, where clients participate online. “The Empowered Me” offers a variety of different programs depending on one’s desired goals and skills. The project offers support and assistance for those looking to further advance their journey towards leadership.
“I realized we all have one thing in common: as we walk through the early phases of our leadership journey, we can often feel a little lost in finding our way- from deciding what we want to do, to then taking the empowered steps to get to where we are going,” Martina explains. “We need to develop essential skills, gather tools, and create a map for our success, but it is not always easy to know where to turn for help.”
Martina continues to inspire young leaders from all over the world to enact positive change. Her newest project is a way to help others along their personal journey and to aid leadership development. The project’s virtual approach allows it to be easily accessible to young leaders everywhere by incorporating Skype calls, supplementary readings, and an assessment package with customized results.
