From the Paper:

"Many leaders begin to build the qualities of a leader during childhood. This was certainly true of Diana. Diana attended her first boarding school at Riddlesworth Hall in Norfolk where she excelled at swinging, diving, and ballet. Diana finished her education at the West Health Public School in Kent where she excelled in sports. Diana continued to train as a leader by being a nanny in London after graduating from school. She also worked at the Young England kindergarten in Knightsbridge. Early in her life Diana cared for children and others."
"Princess Diana was a leader who overcame her problems and found new identity in helping others. Princess Diana believed in focusing on the future and not the past. An example of this is when she sold 79 of her gowns and gave the funds to charity."
