Jesse's Story

Jesse Pulliam's career goal is to become a police officer. He is passionate about serving Baltimore and giving back to the people who have contributed to his early successes.

The challenge he's choosing to address is to create and instill in people the need for civic engagement along with the importance of supporting nonprofit agencies in Baltimore.

Currently, Jesse is developing a pilot class and internship for future students to provide lay advocacy to low-income persons who cannot obtain a lawyer. Baltimore Collegetown LeaderShape has given Jesse the opportunity to reflect on how successful, well-rounded leaders develop innovative approaches to solving real-world problems. He has learned about his own leadership style and how to adapt to become a successful leader; knowledge that he will need as he prepares to serve alongside and lead the men and women with whom he will one day work.
