Sonia Vader joined the Wilmette Institute’s Transformative Leadership (TL) for Youth program in April, 2020. One of her many contributions as a Change Agent* is her inspiring series of heartfelt thank-you cards which she distributes to healthcare workers, doctors, nurses, ambulance workers, postal workers, and custodians and assistants at local hospitals.

*Change Agents are dedicated to personal and social transformation through applying the 6 elements and 18 capabilities of the Transformative Leadership Conceptual Framework.
