My experience at NTLP was amazing. I met people who came from all over the world and the program overall was very diverse. In this program I heard people give very motivational speeches that made me analyze myself as a person and we had many workshops that allowed us to see how diverse we were all from each other. All in all this was an unforgettable experience. We believe in motivating and inspiring youth to be great role models and civic leaders, who want to and will make a positive difference in this world.
