The Five Words and their associated implications are:


Implication: I learn the most about myself by facing challenges and taking risks.


Implication: I need a challenging and supportive community in which to develop my character.


Implication: I am responsible for my own learning.


Implication: I am gifted with a unique potential and conscience is my guide to discovering it.


Implication: I am a leader through asking the best of myself and the best of others.
