“All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost…” –J.R.R. Tolkien.
I made this piece based on the quote above. I feel the imagery perfectly embodies the essence of the journeys in our lives and what it means to be a leader. A leader to be is someone who not only seeks to improve themselves, but elevates those around them and helps them to reach their potential. Being a leader is finding those who’ve wandered and helping them get back on the path to success. I hope that everyone can picture themselves on their own path to where they want to be in life. There is light leading others through that path; likewise, there are resources we have along our own paths. There are people to help along the way. Our leaders act as a guiding light in a confusing time when it's easy to wander off.
