The challenges of being a quiet leader

When Cindy Aispuro got to high school, it became clear that she had inherited her father’s shy nature. But as she gets to know herself and others more, she is coming into her own, and learning to become a leader in spite of being quiet. “Now as a senior in high school, I’ve started to accept that I am a naturally quiet person and that isn’t a bad thing… I know I will work hard to succeed and to be a voice for my community even if my voice is softer than others around me.” Her personal commentary is on Coachella Unincorporated.
