A couple of weeks ago, my fellow YLNI member Sarah Dove introduced a new series: Why I Am YLNI.
She and I are going to tag-team this, together! We're talking to our members, finding out their motivators for being an active YLNI member.
This week, we're continuing on with Ryan Dollens, Associate Broker at Imagine Real Estate, LLC!
What is your involvement with YLNI?
I am the Chair of Living Fort Wayne. I help with meeting new recruits and getting them up and running. I also help some of the other members with the day to day operations.
Why did you decide to join YLNI?
I wanted become more involved with the Fort Wayne community and to help grow my network.
3. What do you hope to accomplish as a member of YLNI?
I would like to grow and develop my leadership skills and to also help make Fort Wayne a better place.
What makes you most proud to be a young leader in northeast Indiana?
I think our community is great and YLNI is trying to make sure the young leaders have a voice and can help make the community even greater. I really enjoyed the leadership institute and I would highly recommend it to anyone consider attending.
If you were showing someone around northeast Indiana who had never been before, where is the first place you would take them?
I would walk around downtown with them to see some of the local restaurants and other unique places. I would also convince them to see a Tin Caps, Mad Ants or Komets game, depending on the season.
Everyone has a reason for being a part of this community of leaders. Why are you YLNI?
