You will be able to see the differences you make whether they be little or small and being able to help others will make you happier to inspire others to do the same. Leading is all about changing. You will not regret trying to be a better leader. I am so thankful for the experience I had to interview Hailey.

If given the chance, I would love to do it in the future as well, whenever it is needed. Equipment is key to our team and I would love for it to look the best it
