Imagine yourself waiting to be interviewed for a job. You are probably nervous and wondering what specific questions will be asked, and may have even googled some usual interview questions to help yourself prepare to answer the recruiter’s questions. The recruiter steps into the room introduces themselves and starts asking questions. He asks you “Where do you see yourself in five years?” as this is a common interview question. Do you have an answer? Or does your mind go blank as you attempt to answer a question you were not prepared for. Whatever your answers to these questions are its important to always have some idea of what your long term and short term goals are for your future. I am being well prepared to answer this question in any interview by Dr. Marlo Kibler as a student in Dynamics of Leadership at Kent State University. By doing my action learning project I have learned the importance of, and how to make SMART goals that will carry me through my entire life. So now let’s take a closer look at my goals and how I am working toward them.
3. Why do you want to be a part of the leadership program at LGHS?
Now that my goals are listed out and articulated into a time frame it really helps to put things into perspective of what needs to happen now. For instance I am just starting out in bobcats against hunger as an executive board member. I hope this position will bring out some more leaderships skills within me that will help me later in life, like when I apply for graduate schools and in the real world working hopefully doing my dream job. That is just yet another example of something that will help gear my towards my end goal. If no one ever set goals where would we be today? It is an interesting question and one that makes me thankful that we all set goals daily and achieve them. For example if I did not set a goal to review for a test then come that test I probably wouldn’t pass which would not further me along my aspirations to finish college. So therefore I’m glad I set goals and that everyone else does no matter how big or small they all eventually lead to something
If accepted, what would be the top 3 goals which you would aim to complete during your time as a staff member?
I had the pleasure of interviewing Justin Robison, Controller and CFO for The Housing Trust in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The Housing Trust is a non-profit agency who helps people in northern New Mexico locate affordable housing. This assistance is provided to low and moderate income level families. The Housing Trust also builds energy efficient, affordable homes for low income families. Justin has been in the financial sector as an Investment Analyst and a Financial Analyst. He earned his MBA at the University of New Mexico. Justin’s leadership style has developed from experience and education, but he appears to still be in the process of really finding what style works best for him. Justin had an insightful view of what defines leadership, what helps motivate his followers, and what makes a good follower.

So far, I have altered how meetings are conducted from last year so that the student administration has more control of communicating ideas to the members. Later in the year, I plan to incorporate additional volunteer opportunities and I want to have more group conversations with the members to hear their ideas and try to merge those ideas into positive changes that can be made. This leadership opportunity is starkly different from that of coordinating a 5k. Being the president of NHS has given me additional exposure to public speaking skills, decision making skills, proper ways to conduct meetings, and ways to present myself professionally. Despite their differences, these leadership opportunities have helped me advance myself in my journey to accomplish my goals. The skills I gained and refined from these opportunities will undoubtedly assist me when trying to procure grants, build connections, and become a research team leader.
As an Orientation Leader I serve as a representative for Florida Memorial University fulfilling diverse roles while becoming a friend and mentor to new students, the PR Director for Faces Modeling Troupe Inc. Miami Chapter ensuring the communication strategy is consistent reflecting the non-for-profit organization strategic vision, and an active member of the University’s National Society Collegiate Scholars Program building bonds with fellow members that will enhance my life both now and in the world beyond college, all the while striving to pursue a Bachelors Degree. Volunteering my time and effort on and off campus has and continues to instill lifelong lessons into my personal growth. I wholeheartedly believe that the person who should have the most vested interests in my career is I, therefore, I take precaution when making decisions that will be reflected throughout my college career. This summer, through Commissioner Barbara Jordan’s Summer Youth Internship Initiative, I was awarded an awesome opportunity to intern at El Dorado Furniture in the Marketing Department, which I insightfully claim to be an eye opening and gratifying involvement. It truly helped build my professional experience in my field of study.
Over this past year, I was given the opportunity to take on two new leadership roles. The first was presented to me through my university. I was honored to accept the nomination as the president of Aurora’s athletic training club. This role consists of conducting meetings, mentoring new

I didn’t know what path my future was going to take until I became a member of Boy Scouts of America. Since becoming a Boy Scout I have decided that I wanted to become a District Executive, better known as a Professional Scouter. By becoming a District Executive for Boy Scouts of America, I will have the opportunity to help hundreds of youth. Becoming a District Executive, I will learn that helping youth has been a long part of the history of Boy Scouts of America. Then I will have to have the right education so I can go through a week of training to become a District Executive. Next I will learn the duties of being a District Executive. Then with doing my job, come benefits and a salary. Then once I have been a District Executive for
