Keep on Learning

One of the most impactful lessons that I have learned as a young leader is; you are never done learning. There have been many influential leaders in the world that have advice for young leaders like me. Here are some quotes that I have around my office and house that inspire me to continue learning and growing as a leader everyday:

“You can tell you’re on the road to success; it’s uphill all the way.”

-Paul Harvey

"We always overestimate the change that will occur in the next two years and underestimate the change that will occur in the next ten. Don't let yourself be lulled into inaction."

-Bill Gates

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.

-John Quincy Adams

Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.

-Mahatma Gandhi

Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.

-John F. Kennedy

My name is Emily Herman, I am the Events Coordinator at the YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park Colorado. My life can be described in three simple words: faith, family and friends. God is where I find my strength every day, and He is who drives me to better myself both personally and professionally. I was born and raised in Boulder, Colorado and have been blessed with a great family. I have been working at the YMCA of the Rockies for 5 years and have the great privilege of becoming a Change Agent with the World Alliance of YMCA's. I have spent the last year in a half working and learning with other young leaders in the Y movement from all over the world.
