Max Derbyshire
Class of 2017

My name is Max D., and I am a current high school junior. I always strive to be involved and challenge myself to become a better person, whether it be in or out of school. I am involved in many extracurricular activities such as National Honors Society and Spanish Honors Society, as well as the Treasurer for a Youth in Government delegation. On top of my activities, I always try to volunteer at any opportunity I can.

It’s a huge honor to be involved in the International Leadership Business Summit and to help others around the world. I am extremely grateful to have an opportunity to actually make a difference: not many others have such a privilege.

Jody Goldman
Class of 2020

Hello, my name is Jody Goldman. I am a sophomore at Los Alamitos High School. I am taking Honors English, Anatomy and many other rigorous classes this year.

I am in the Los Alamitos show choir. I have been singing in choir since I was in third grade and I enjoy it very much. I dance outside of school as well as take private singing lessons with a vocal coach.

I volunteer at my Synagogue every Sunday as a teacher’s aide as well as being involved in a project called Yom Hashoah where over the course of the year myself, a rabbi, and many other Jewish teens plan, create, and lead a service to commemorate the holocaust. We meet around once a month and are responsible for one part of the service.

I look forward to being able to help small business owners in developing countries. I cannot express my gratitude enough to be involved in changing people’s lives and changing the world.

My name is Austin Weatherhead. and I am currently a senior in high school. I always strive for self-improvement within school, extracurricular activities, and the social aspects of my life. I challenge myself academically with a majority of honors and AP courses. I have participated in the International Science and Engineering Fair, as well as many other activities such as Model Legislature, jazz band, knowledge bowl, and music listening club. I am also a three-sport athlete and I play competitive soccer year-round. I always try to connect with my community and jump at any chance to volunteer.

I believe that the International Leadership Business Summit provides a phenomenal opportunity to put my strengths to work. It is truly an honor to be apart of this international network and I am looking forward to making a positive impact on the world.

Owen Corderre                                                                                                   Class of 2018

My name is Owen Coderre, and I’m a rising Junior at Algonquin Regional High School in Massachusetts.  I am honored to have taken part in the International Leadership and Business Summit at Georgetown University this past July.   The experience was amazing on a personal level, and it was very gratifying to know our efforts were helping community and business leaders in Nigeria become even more successful at their particular jobs or career aspirations.

     In high school, I have been involved in the DECA business and leadership program, and a member of the Cross Country team and Winter Track team.  I also play baseball, and was privileged to play on the Varsity team as a Sophomore.
As a member of a medium sized town in Central Massachusetts, close to cities like Worcester and Boston, helping out others in need has been important to me from an early age.  Since I was in elementary school, I have participated in a Community Meals program offered through our church that provides nourishing meals and a chance for fellowship each Wednesday night at a local church. I have also volunteered through a program at my high school to serve the community when needed, for events such as Election Day and helping out at the local senior center.   One initiative I am most proud of is that I am the co-creator of a fundraising effort called “Candy for a Cause” to help school children on the island of Roatan, in Honduras.  I am currently selling candy bars to raise money for this effort. I vacationed in Roatan with my family for a scuba-diving adventure, and was struck by the abject poverty on the beautiful island.  After working with a local nurse, my cousin and I created the fundraiser, and will be sending much needed funds to the island’s school age children to help purchase supplies in high demand, such as over-the-counter medical supplies, backpacks, scissors and colored paper.
     The International Leadership and Business Summit has been a wonderful experience for me, helped me grow and learn more about the broader world in which we live in, and I look forward to being a part of this program in the future.
