Jacob Mills

Jacob MillsMy proudest moment was graduating from the University of Waikato in 2012 after three years of study. Completing a degree in sport and leisure studies has given me confidence.

Another highlight is being able to share ideas with other leaders who are on the Be. Leadership programme. Seeing the different styles and approaches they bring has really helped me develop as an individual.

I want to make positive change to ensure all people are seen as equals. I want to captivate the naysayers and show them there are no boundaries too high to overcome for people with disabilities.

I would like to create effective change in my region and nation in my lifetime, if not make positive change internationally one day. I want to be a leader in any field that I pursue.
