YUVA Academy empowers Miss, Mr & Mrs India Worldwide Mauritius 2019 through Leadership Programme

On Saturday, May 25 2019, the School of Leadership and Development of YUVA Academy conducted a leadership training with candidates of Mr, Miss and Mrs India Worldwide Mauritius 2019 in Cybertower, Ebene. The training lasted for about 6 hours.

Leadership does not depend on one’s position but on one’s skills. Apart from being a leader of a team, individuals should also be able to lead themselves. The aim of the workshop was to improve the participants’ leadership skills and help them to present their best selves at the final of the pageant.

The workshop started with an ice-breaking session of self-introduction. Participants introduced themselves and the reasons for attending the workshop and answered different questions that revealed much of their personalities. For example, ‘If you can become an animal, which animal do you want to be and why?’ When a participant was asked which movie she wanted to experience, she was hesitant and did not know how to answer. However, with others’ encouragement, she finally gave her own answer. Ice-breaking is such an activity that encourages individuals to talk openly and creates a friendly environment. The self-introduction session ended in a cheerful atmosphere.
