I have been put in a leadership role many times. Going on mission trips, and having part time jobs throughout high school have put me in places where I have had to be a leader. I have worked children's camp through my church for over five years. This
I have many experiences with leadership experiences due to my participation in FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America). In FBLA I had to take a leadership role in a group project that we compete with. While I was the leader I influence others to get the project done and work together as a team. I made sure that we were all on track and that our assign tasks were being completed. When there was an issue I would try to help them and figure out what was happening. I would bring peace when there was arguments.
Firstly, in my Academic Career, I have held a multitude of leadership roles. My sophomore year , I was a class representative for Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America, commonly known as FCCLA. It was my duty to alert members and keep them up to date regarding meetings and
I have demonstrated leadership in a several different ways. During middle school, I was a member of the National Junior Honor Society. In fact, I gave up a majority of my study halls to help out the advisor. I am currently a captain of my fall sport. Because I hold this position, I help the underclassmen during games, encourage them, and resolve conflicts. In addition to that, I used to be a teacher’s assistant to a second grade religious education class. Next year, I plan to join student government and maintain leadership positions.
Throughout my high school, I have been able to not only be led but also being a leader myself. I have been a part of high schools drill team for three years and of course every year I have had a group of leaders that help us throughout the year with our personal goals and struggles. This was my one of my first experiences with having a leader and it truly became what inspired me to become a leader myself. I joined the Latino Student Union my junior year and became the secretary/representative officer my senior year. Within these involvements, I have learned what it takes to be the best leader you can be and which ones I value the most.
Throughout high school, I participated in many leadership activities. I served as the president of the National Homeschool Honor Society, which involved organizing meetings community service projects. I taught a class of twenty preschoolers at my church for two years. Even simply hosting Bible studies has involved a lot of planning and leadership. All of these opportunities have shown me that a good leader not only instructs people on what to do, but they also listen to the people they are leading. A good leader needs equal amounts of passion, patience, confidence, and integrity.
Leaders do not appear out of nowhere they have to learn from past leaders or role models. To be a leader you must obtain the skills that will help you to teach and lead others. These skills include a strong work ethic, honesty, hard work, integrity, confidence, creativity, and respect for others. Leadership is mostly learned through experience and sometimes failure. As a leader I believe that leading others is not about telling them what to do, or taking control, but being a role model and an inspiration as what to strive to be. This year, through AFJROTC, I have been given the opportunity to lead a small group of other cadets to organize the JROTC 5K. I learned the skills to lead other by following the lead of past leaders. There have been
I have also had experience of leadership in my community by being a part of a youth ministry in church that gathers students from different high schools where we get to share our experiences and struggles as teenagers. I was able to go to a retreat where I lead a bible
Coming from a small town known as Plymouth, NC, resources weren’t always available. At my high school, my education was challenged every day. I overcame these challenges by striving to learn more and staying at the top of my class. When I think of The University of North Carolina at Pembroke, I think of a serene place with ample opportunities. At UNCP, I believe I can turn my dreams into a reality. My unique ways of learning can bring a lot to the table. I’m not only a leader in the classroom, but I’m a leader in my community.
Leadership has always been a large part of my life, from being 8th-Grade Class Representative, Freshmen Class Officer, Sophomore Class President, and Key Club President, I was able to balance all of my extracurricular activities, take initiative in my position while learning and teaching new leadership skills to other students.
My specific leaders did one TECON in early January then in May we had our nationwide but after that nothing. They send me packages I complete and send them back. I go weeks without talking to them and when I do it is for something not related to the job.
The first time I was told that I am a natural leader was by my 3rd grade basketball coach. She informed me of my ability to lead by example and stressed the importance of helping peers by showing them. This approach is as instinctual to me now as it was in 3rd grade. The value I held for leadership persisted throughout high school. I became captain of the volleyball team for two years and I obtained several leadership roles in clubs: I was co-president of Future Leaders of America, vice president of Key Club, tutor chairman of National Honors Society, a member of Student Council, and a mentor for incoming freshmen.
I remember my freshman year of orientation quite vividly. We had recieved our class schedules for the year , a few weeks before school was to commence. The moment I glanced at my schedule, there appeared a glaring mistake that protruded from the agenda. I was allotted Leadership class sixth period with Ms.Hanson; a class that I had no intention on taking, and a teacher whom I heared only middle schoolers whisper about. My heart skipped a beat but being the very timid freshman that I was, I did not request a change. Summer passed, nerves heightened, final goodbyes to middle school life were had and from there I discovered what it takes to be a leader.
There have been a couple times I have had to be a leader. My freshman, sophomore, and junior years, I was class president. This meant putting meetings together and running them, making sure we had a yearly fundraiser, and creating various homecoming activities including a float. The other students in
Something I will never forget in my life is my experience at Advancing Leadership Youth. Advancing Leadership Youth (ALY for short) is a year-long program in which students from around the Federal Way region that apply, are selected, interview, and attend, almost like your first job. But, it’s not the process of getting into the program that makes it so compelling, it’s what happens when you’re their.
