Making marks

Lauren Fumi, an eighth- grade student at Columbus Academy and an Upper Arlington resident, will travel to Harvard University to participate in a People to People Leadership Summit.

As a Leadership Ambassador, Fumi will work closely with fellow students from around the world to study effective world leaders and further develop her own leadership style.

Hands-on activities for the student ambassadors include participating in a team-building ropes challenge course and workshops on active listening, empathy, conflict resolution and the importance of community service.

Fumi will participate in a global youth panel discussion and attend a keynote workshop with motivational speaker Harriet Turk.
