After I look the title Future Leaders Institute that first thing that came to my mind was that they are going to be leaders that will care about others and will lead us through freedom and peace to this country. Also Future Leaders Institute means to me that they are people like me; ordinary people that care about others and are willing to suffer in order to change our lives as Americans. I think that this organization is going to prepare us as college students to become the future leaders of America and around the world. I think that this organization will provide to us the college students the resources to become the future leaders. I believe that the kind of leaders that our future needs are the ones who are willing to serve rather than lead, be able to come out with solutions to problems that we face every day as Americans, that like to work together and share different ideas to change injustice in America. I think that future leaders are working to provide to everyone in the United States the resources to overcome injustice and help to defend our rights that we as Americans deserve and work for.

When I look at the title Future Leaders Institute, I imagine a group of people who are ready to dedicate a piece of their lives to making a difference in their community. For whatever their focus may be, they are equally motivated as they understand their energy together as an institute will affect each other's progress. But more importantly, they understand how important the words "Future" and "Leader" actually are.

Looking at the title The Future Leaders Institute, one thing comes to mind: the next generation. How can we create a future that will be beneficial for the next generation? The future generation? What can we do as leaders or future leaders to defeat the ongoing oppression today that possess such limitations so that our next generation can have better opportunities? All of these questions comes to mind when I think of The Future Leaders Institute, ultimately making it the primary reason why I joined. I want to learn from the leaders of today and leaders of tomorrow and the people as a whole who are one of the key parts for a movement to progress. To be able to understand and become allies of all shunned and oppressed voices. Because the future leaders are us! The generation now, the ones that have so much to say but encounter so many obstacles and limited opportunities because at the end of the day, future leaders aren't doing this solely just for ourselves, they are doing it for the present and future generations.

When I see the title “The Future Leaders Institute”, it makes me think of the youth. I picture dedicated, passionate people who are ready to organize. Whether the passion comes from anger, association, affliction, these people will want to make a change in the world. It sounds like this organization aims to cultivate leadership skills in the younger generation. I think that an organization can have a huge influence on future leaders; the organization can help these leaders build connections and network with other people who may propel the leaders’ movement forward. Future leaders will work for their community and other communities to build strong relationships between allies.

Seeing the title"The Future Leaders Institute", I imagine a prestigious school for people who want to start a business. Even though Doctor Crain informed us that we'll be able to establish a business by the end of the quarter, learning business just came to mind. Also, I remember that Doctor Crain mentioned her take over of the institute.
