Dee Roopun was an academically gifted and high-achieving 24 year old, who felt that she was drifting through life and lacked goals.
All that changed for Dee when she attended the LEAP development program in Los Angeles in 2014. Dee had been through plenty of training courses and personal development programs before, but this one was different. Her exposure to high achieving young fellow students, along with content that challenged and mentors who inspired, lifted her out of her rut.
A key outcome of the program was driving out fear and instilling new form of self-confidence that has Dee looking forward to experiences that would previously have terrified her.
