Political and cultural tensions. Economic crises. Increasing rates of depression and anxiety. In a world with so many problems, it seems easy to leave the heavy lifting to leaders. But who are the leaders? What is Leadership? Read on if you’re curious about how to change the world.
Christian leadership to change the world is more than a motto at Regent University. In Regent’s podcast, How to really change the worldwe dive into the lives and work of some of our alumni who are making a difference in their industries, perhaps in ways different from what you think.
The podcast will feature “lawyers, professors, entrepreneurs and current Regent University students and alumni,” said Darvin Muentes, co-host of How to really change the world. “The hope of this podcast is to inspire people to create their own Regent story.”
Leaders are more than people standing on stage behind podiums. Leaders are people who change the world in exciting new ways every day.
The Regent community has achieved a great deal even during its student years at university. Students have won over 645 local, national and international student film awards. Law students have managed to win the Spong Moot Court tournament, while business students rank in the Enactus US national exhibitions.
There are also many examples of how to change the world to learn from the ancients. Kenton Lee, a graduate of the School of Business & Leadership, started his own company to create special shoes for needy children in other countries.
Ann Buwalda is driven by compassion for those who seek asylum and refuge in their country. She founded Just Law International PC and fights for the rights of those who cannot fight for themselves.
Virginia Lieutenant Governor Winsome Earle-Sears made history as the first woman elected to the office. Her passion for education continues to serve the Virginia community and the next generation of leaders.
Changing the world isn’t always about making headlines and magazine covers.
Sometimes it’s about fulfilling your calling and role with excellence, like Stacey Thoroughgood, a first-generation student who cares about serving her team at work.
Maybe changing the world is all about being tenacious and chasing dreams that are unique to you. Gary Powers overcame struggles with grades and homelessness to graduate from Regent University with a 3.1 GPA.
Changing the world also means helping others tell their story. Loni Albertson, a graduate of the MFA in Film-Television program, worked at DreamWorks for eight years before starting a career at Illumination. So far, she has worked on major films: Rise of the Guardians (2012), Home (2015), The Boss Baby (2017) and Minions: The Rise of Gru (2022).
