As you’re growing up you learn that difference between a follower and a leader.  A leader is someone that takes the first step, shows by example, and isn’t afraid to be wrong at times. At first I use to believe that a leader was a person that would just take the role and have control […]

Helping others is a major component of being a leader. I was able to experience this at the last service project that was at the Food Bank. Even though all we did was sort out food and stick them in boxes at least I knew that in the long run it was going to a […]

Experiences Make Great Leaders

December 12, 2012

In my personal opinion, experiences make great leaders! If you think about it, our experiences help to comprise who we are as individuals.

Overlooking Those That Matter

December 9, 2012

So I decided to go to the Capital Food Bank Trip and I was really hoping that it would be a good day. I get nervous to go on activities with this hall because everyone already knows each other and I feel constantly left out. I am having a really hard time getting comfortable at […]

Leaders Never Quit

December 9, 2012

Sometimes when you are a leader and you make comments you do not necessarily mean or you look down on […]
