Living leadership.

During her time at Hollins, Yafen Liang '12 made the most of her experience with the Batten Leadership Institute. Not only did she work in the office, but she also completed the certificate program, and she used her leadership training in two exceptional internships, at Simon & Schuster in New York and Erickson Beamon, a London jeweler that counts First Lady Michelle Obama and Lady Gaga among its admirers. "Batten helps you learn what makes you tick, find self-confidence, and understand how to effectively communicate in every situation," she says.
