"A PERSONAL MISSION STATEMENT IS A POWERFUL TOOL BECAUSE IT PROVIDES YOU WITH A PATH FOR SUCCESS, AND IT GIVES YOU PERMISSION TO SAY NO TO THE THINGS THAT ARE DISTRACTIONS IT ALSO CHANGES OVER TIME"
"path to success".

Today as we were reflecting upon our first year in the Innovation Academy we decided that it was time to redefine our purpose, and this is how we came across with the mission statement. The purpose that was stated in our website didn't truly define us. Now, were were ready and experienced to give a mission statement to the IA.
We have been in this journey for a year, we understood what it meant to have a culture of excellence, we were finding our passion for learning and we had enjoyed creating real-world projects. So, we begun to brainstorm. With the answers we got from the class we begun to synthesize down to the most important answers of each question.
1. Culture of excellence
2. Create passion for learning
3. Life- long leaders
4. Adapt the way we teach and learn to improve the way we live
With the following in mind we all created, individually, a mission statement for the IA. These were powerful, even standing alone they could already be single mission statements. It was so hard to put something together because there were so many words I wanted to add, which made it longer, and I know it had to remain short. Finally I tried my best to bring it all together in a short way, we all did, and I wrote it on a google docs were the rest of the statements were placed.
