Leaders in Residence

A Young Ancient is invited to campus each year to enrich the dialogue around cultivating one's personal power. The Leader in Residence participates in classroom discussions and a community lecture, while serving as an example of the school's mission to shape a changing world.

Past Leaders in Residence

Tina Tianyi Xu '05, 2017 Leader in Residence

Tina Xu '05"I am proud to say that I am part of a group of confident, well-balanced women who have pursued their passions and contributed meaningfully to their communities. Your time here at Porter's is more valuable than you will recognize now. Don't forget to cherish the learning experiences and relationships you build here, because they will impact you for a lifetime." Read more from Tina.

Sharifah Holder '06, 2016 Leader in Residence

Sharifah Holder '06"The phrase 'we expect our graduates to shape a changing world' is one of the most profound yet simple statements I have ever heard. The possibilities are endless, but they don't offer us a roadmap, but rather a call to action! At Porter's, we are given the skills to think critically and form our own opinions as well as the freedom to use those skills to forge our own paths... they are emboldening us to envision the future we want and empowering us to take actionable steps towards creating that future."
