These simple words represent our identity both as a team and as individuals as we continue working toward our goal of engaging and empowering the next generation of leaders during our 10th year anniversary of being W.A.R. Lords.
Every year, we decide on a theme that serves as an identifier for that year’s build season. Last year’s theme for the 2016 season was By the Numbers, which served us well as we reflected on our progress as a team. This year, our theme is We Are. However, our goal this year is not only to use the theme to inspire ourselves to be the best we can be. We also wish to inspire others to embrace their uniquenesses and what makes them, well, them!
In order to do this, we are launching a brand new series of blogs: the We Are blogs. These blogs will be written by W.A.R. Lords of all talents and backgrounds, not just writers. Our hope is that the FIRST® community will grow to love each quirky personality just as much as we do, and that everyone who reads these blogs will be emboldened to embrace their individual traits as well.
