    The Week Three course materials of Foundations in Leadership have been influential in focusing on my personal state of mental health.

    Reflection Essay I must confess that I’m most definitely not the Best Writer in the world, but I’m probably close to gold in Best Procrastinator. I haven’t completed as much, or tried as hard as I could have this semester, and now I’m paying for it.
