Throughout my high school career, I have been involved in various clubs and organizations to help me become a leader in my community. At Auburn High School I took on the role of being a Publicist officer for National Technical Honors Society the first two consecutive years that it became a part of our school. I gained a lot of leadership experience through this club. Implementing a new organization is never easy and takes a lot of hard work and dedication from the leaders of the club. By being a part of a very helpful, dedicated and motivated team, we helped affiliate all the eligible members into the club and in turn helped introduce this new club to the school. As publicist my role in helping the club grow was crucial; I helped in publicizing the clubs various projects and involvement.
For instance, whenever we receive a group project in class, I step forward and parcel out roles to my peers and organize the project to ensure it will run smoothly. Also, I joined the newly formed Engineering Club and was elected Historian by my fellow members. As historian, I document our meetings and events and upload pictures to our Facebook page to keep a record of our work. This responsibility falls solely on me, and I have demonstrated leadership by organizing club photos and allowing for proper documentation. Overall, Kinnick High School is a place where my leadership abilities
Being active in clubs while at DCHS has made me more confident in myself while in school and out of school. This is partially due to me taking leadership positions in Debate, GSA, Scholar’s Bowl, and National Honors Society, and being Co-Vice President of the Senior Class. I am learning more about myself while helping others discover who they are themselves. And while there are times I am shaky when it comes to being an effective leader, I know this will only help me to grow and improve myself in the
Starting from Girl Scouts to CJSF, my early love for aiding others quickly developed. However, my most pivotal service experience is my involvement in Key Club. As I became further involved in this organization, the thought of advancing my role by becoming an officer became very persistent in my mind. Being extremely shy and withdrawn, the idea of being a leader was incredibly intimidating to even fathom. Despite my shyness and anxiety causing me to doubt myself, my love for serving others outweighed any uncertainty I had in myself. After a daunting speech and election process, I gladly accepted the challenge of a club secretary, which has given me the opportunity to not only serve my community, but the members of my club. My experience as a Key Club officer has enriched my perception of myself and widened my range to serve. It has taught me to take risks and step out of my comfort zone in order to pursue my passions. Key Club has served as a platform for me to become more engrossed in my community and lead me to consider careers in which I can help those in
During my high school career, I have immersed myself in numerous clubs and committees, empowering my development as an avid leader. I have been involved in my school’s poverty club for four years. Currently as club president, I direct meetings and the implementation of our events and fundraisers for local homeless youth. Additionally, I am co-president for the organization of Moscrop Human Library, a school-wide event that breaks down stereotypes through dialogue. Being involved in the planning since 2015, I was in charge of finding speakers, gaining sponsors, and more. This year, I will be leading the event, delegating tasks, coordinating volunteers, and more. Furthermore, I have been an active member in graduation council for two years and
As president, vice president, and treasurer of my school’s KAY (Kansas Association for Youth) Club, I attended KAY Leadership Camp, met many friends and learned leadership techniques which helped me to lead the club to success in various community service projects and fundraisers. Among these were a block the door drive in which students donated canned goods for our community food bank, highway cleanup days to clear the ditches of litter, and many other events. KAY has taught me the value of service to others and how to guide a group towards a common goal for the betterment and benefit of other people and the community and world.
Learning how to deal with issues in a decisive manner translated to my attitudes outside the family circle. I organized a female string quartet in the early teens and we did so well in the community that even the Orlando Sentinel and Channel 13 reported my story. My early leadership skills paved the way for me to take a leader/concertmaster position for the All Orange County High School Orchestra and which has over 100 members. As the president of the National Mu Alpha Theta Math Club, I organized and participated tutoring opportunities for members to volunteer our time with students. I initiated using the web as
Going into my senior year, I am one of the few juniors who can say I have had a regular place and appearance on Columbus’ Medley Service Club since freshman year. Medley Service Club has allowed me many leadership opportunities both within and outside the meetings. Within the meetings, I have taken leadership by note taking
By having so much exposure to young adults, I know that I will be one of the people that have a direct impact on them. I always find the greatest pleasure in hearing that I am their favourite senior cadet or that they are thankful that I pushed them beyond their limits. In addition to the sea cadet program, I am also involved in the leadership within my school. I am the head of my school’s leadership team in which I spearheaded my school’s annual grade nine orientation and I am currently in the midst of planning a weekend in May for leaders among my school board. As a leader within my school, I have gained countless opportunity to work with others. For example, during my school’s grade nine orientation, I know that many of the grade nine students looked up to me and would like to follow a path of interschool leadership. In planning a three day weekend for 350 leaders in the TCDSB, I have a fantastic role in working with eleven other individuals to prepare a fun-filled weekend that has always made a lasting impact on me in previous
Throughout my past experiences, I have developed leadership and organizational skills, and have been able to multitask, motivate, and excel in varied settings. Volunteering for Habitat for Humanity as an undergraduate has reinforced the importance of communication and working as a team player. Instructing AHA sponsored BLS course for nearly two years has instilled in me a great sense of responsibility, organization, and effective leadership skills. Finally, organizing and participating in health fairs as a member of the American Medical Student Association enabled me to create awareness and educate patients on different disease states, and confirmed to me how much I enjoy playing an active role in the community.
These past four years of Key Club have taught me many things. I’ve gained an appreciation for service and understood its impacts, as well as gained responsibility and leadership skills as President. Key Club is one of two clubs I’ve stuck around throughout my entire high school experience. The reason being that it has allowed me to improve myself while helping others improve themselves
With a team of other high school leaders, I planned and organized activities and games for younger students for the retreats and camp events during the school year. I learned how to communicate effectively with my fellow peers and staff members, and most importantly how to deal with conflict in times of disagreement by finding compromise and different solutions. In addition to my church experience, I have worked at a restaurant business that required much teamwork, quality customer service and responsibility in carrying out assigned tasks. Due to its fast paced speed in serving the food and customers, I learned how to adapt to situations that were unexpected, such as when a customer had a specific request. I quickly found the help of my coworkers the most valuable when adapting to these situations, and that in fact I was able to excel in my own work when working in a
In the upcoming year, I would like to focus and work on my leadership skills, one of the four pillars of the National Honors Society. This year I was elected Vice President of marketing for the Jupiter High School DECA chapter. This role will help me with my leadership goal by teaching me the responsibilities of being part of/taking charge a larger group. it is now my responsibility to create invitations, direct social media, membership, and advertising the chapter and its activities. I am the head of a group of four directors who help me carry out and delegate these duties. in the next year, I plan to get all things done in a timely manner and treat all my responsibilities with equal value and necessity. Leadership is also about influencing
Although I am proud of many of my leadership experiences, none surpass the times when my leadership makes a meaningful change in someone’s life. Eight someones, actually, as is the case with the project I lead in a group called “Teens with Wings”. I am not a president or vice president of the club, however, I believe I exhibited the traits needed to reach our goal of providing Christmas gifts to parents who didn’t have the means to buy their children any presents. As someone who grew up in a single-parent household that was financially sufficing, I was especially eager to head this program and alleviate another family’s struggles. My role was to organize a fundraiser to provide money to buy the gifts and then organize the gift purchasing and
