The President of the Student Council. The drum major of the marching band. The founder of the biggest club at school. All of these positions involve organizing, interacting with, and motivating a large amount of people and just scream “LEADERSHIP!” However, this wasn’t the right kind of leadership for me; I’m not the type to get up and speak in front of a big group of people or give grandiose motivational speeches, but I still wanted to be helpful to others nonetheless.
In 6th grade, I was chosen to participate in a leadership program at Richard Hull Middle School. At this program, I worked with girls who possessed similar leadership qualities, and I learned more about what it is to be a good leader. This leadership position taught me what makes a good leader. For my three years in high school, I dreamed to be in NHS. This is not only a role, but also a responsibility. This past year, I was selected as one of four board members of the Youth Church Committee. I was placed in charge of organizing quiz meet, dance, and banquet programs in which it would occur at various times throughout the
My first leadership opportunity was to teach a cosmetology course at my high school. I focused on teaching the girls the aspects of cosmetology that they find appealing while still getting them to learn the less exciting aspects of the course. This allowed me to create a trip to the local senior center so that the girls could learn first hand how to do certain skills and to really perfect their abilities in a controlled environment. I currently teach cosmetology 15, 25 and 35.
A strong example of my leadership experience is my senior season of football. Following the 2016-2017 academic year, our head coach resigned on short notice and lacked any coach to fill the position. Because he left on such short notice, we didn’t have a coach for the first two weeks of the preseason, a crucial developing point in the season. However, a small group of other seniors and I were able to schedule workouts until we got a new coach. This established our group as team leaders and allowed us to lead the team to success in the regular season. I was later named a team captain for my leadership on and off the field. This gave me the ability further lead by example as well as keep the team’s morale up in the face of adversity. I ran extra
A leadership experience in what I positively influence others and helped resolve disputes was Link Crew. Link Crew is a program where we help incoming freshmen to high school and show them around school and help them out on anything they need like homework. When I was a link crew leader I helped many kids who had low grades. While I was in this program I noticed that many kids had low grades and didn't turn in work or even their homework I did my best and talked to them about how they will struggle so much to get there credits later on some kids listen and did all their work where they at least passed their classes with a D or C. I had people who I got to meet during this I communicated with many people who joined this program and helped many kids. Students who come to high school think it will be very easy like in middle school but it will get harder each year. Many times I was helping the students I feel like It influenced them to work harder and be better in school and help each other in some ways. Link Crew was such a good program that it was where others students helped other students. I showed many leadership experience by joining this program.
Throughout my high school years, I have had the opportunity to demonstrate my leadership skills through different organizations and events. I have participated in events such as History Fair, and have been part of the organization of National Honor Society through three years of high school. I was the leader of my History Fair project group when preparing for competition. The organization of National Honor Society has helped me demonstrate my leadership skills through volunteer work meant to help and improve society helping me gain experience as a leader.
The leadership role I’m most proud of is my participation in two mission trips. Growing up in a community near the largest city in Iowa, my first mission trip was in an impoverished area of Wyoming, the Wind River Indian Reservation. My second mission trip was in the underprivileged areas of Nashville, Tennessee. During these two trips, I learned how to give more than to receive by painting houses for those unable to, distributed food at a food pantry to those who don’t have the means to purchase food, listened and brought cheer to those injured or ill at a hospital, and read and played with children at a daycare. In all of these activities I gained the experiences that it’s always best to put others needs before my own, give back and to take action when not asked
Some of my leadership experiences consist of being in LDS church presidents such as president, First counselor, second counselor, and secretary. I have also been a youth leader in my 4-H club, The Coltman Wranglers. A school activity I have participated in was on the Panther’s swim team in eighth
Throughout the duration of my life, roles of leadership have influenced my stance towards my major, most notably my role in the Girl Scouts of America. Committing to Girl Scouts for thirteen years has given me ample opportunities to positively impact others. It has also given me real world scenarios in which I had the chance to resolve disputes, interact with diverse people, and contribute to several projects that bettered my community. I take pride in my time with the Scouts, as it not only benefitted me by personally transforming me into a young professional with a strong work ethic and morals, but it allowed me to help others and work on understanding the world around me. My most significant and rewarding project involved conducting research
In and outside school, I’ve done many activities that I’ve been the leader of, mostly involved with charing things for StuCo. I’ve chaired many things, but most likely some of the most important things I’ve chaired have been being one of the chairs for the winter energizer, and being a chair for the leadership recognition breakfast. In the winter energizer I was tasked with helping make a massive school wide scavenger hunt, which took a lot of time and effort to figure out clues and decide how everything would fit together. I also had to design a maze for people to navigate blindfolded and they had to have a partner direct them where to go. The last thing I did at the winter energizer was help manage one of the “olympic games”, which was just a simple mini game, but I had to explain the rules, make sure the people obeyed said rules, and afterwards I had to clean up the massive mess the game left, as there were M&Ms all over the floor. For the leadership recognition

In my secondary school in United Kingdom, I was a member of multiple clubs and organizations that help fight against ignorance. I become a restorative justice leader, where I learned how to resolve conflicts between students and practice helping others with anger issues. In addition to that, I assumed the position of a leader in the pledge against prejudice program which gave me opportunity to hold talks in multiple primary schools using my interpersonal communication skills. These clubs and organizations also gave me a chance to show my leadership skills and develop them.
