SIMPLY AXEL SERVES AS A LEADERSHIP GROUP, PODCAST, COMMUNITY, AND A SERIES THAT INSPIRES AND EMPOWERS SELF-DISCOVERY BY EMPOWERING STUDENTS TO LEAD WITH LOVE.

"lead with love"

THE PODCAST

It all began with sharing stories.

SIMPLY AXEL PODCAST WAS FIRST KNOWN AS THIS TEENAGE LIFE. AXEL STARTED THIS PODCAST TO SHARE STORIES AND PERSONAL EXPERIENCES THAT TEENAGERS FACE IN THEIR TEENAGE YEARS. AFTER REALIZING HE WOULDN'T BE A TEENAGER FOREVER, AXEL MADE THE DECISION TO CHANGE THE PODCAST NAME TO SIMPLY AXEL. IT WASN'T UNTIL THE PLANNING OF SEASON 4 THAT AXEL REALIZED HE WANTED TO TURN HIS PASSION FOR LEADERSHIP INTO AN ORGANIZATION THAT HELPS DEVELOP THE LEADERSHIP POTENTIAL OF STUDENTS AND LEADERSHIP ORGANIZATIONS.
