Hannah Rose Ledezma
PLC 2017 • International Affairs

My name is Hannah Rose, and I am a biethnic Mexican-American queer woman from rural Pennsylvania (isn't than an identity mouthful?). I'll be graduating in May 2021 with a Bachelor's degree in International Affairs, accompanied by minors in Spanish, Communication, and Leadership Studies. After graduating, I will be moving forward with Teach For America as a 2021 Corps member. Recently, I have come to learn that leadership is about listening to all stakeholders and guiding solution-driven conversation in an educated direction rather than immediate or radical changemaking. It is PLC, through lessons of iteration and friendship, that has facilitated my growth into someone who practices leadership by putting other voices ahead of my own. With my degree and this new perspective, I hope to become a liaison between developing governments and nonprofits seeking support. But... we'll see where the wind takes me; I just want to learn along the way.
