Acknowledgements
0 I thank my teachers to give me an

opportunity to research on leaders and get to


know more about values, beliefs, and
choices. Through this activity I learnt that
every great person had to make a choice and
a decision. Ms. Madhu and Ms. Flona helped
me a lot to make this PowerPoint
presentation. I also thank my peers to help
me.

THANK
YOU
