Being a leader involves many different characteristics. A leader must set the example for all others in the group, because if they are to show up late to practice, there isn’t a reason that any of the other members should not do the same. A leader must take risks for the benefit of the group as well as make sacrifices for it. Becoming the leader of the group requires for them to be the most dedicated. They must work harder and not be afraid to lead the group. A leader must be willing and ready to not only give orders but receive them.
The National Honor Society is based off of four pillars; Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character. Scholarship is one of the most important pillars to me. Scholarship means not only doing well in school and getting good grades, but applying what I have learned and using it everyday. I know the importance of education and feel that I am a lifelong learner. I feel very fortunate to have been raised in a family where education is a priority. I was taught to work hard and never give up.
The infamous answer to the question, “What is your primary goal for going to school?” is “to further my education, get a job, and be successful” such a cliché if I must say myself. My goal attending school is to make my family happy, as well as myself. In high school, I did not apply myself like I should have done because I was not sure if college was in my favor. Also, being the child of a single parent wanting to attend college seemed impossible, especially far from home. In a family where no one has surpassed the first two years of college, I feel a spotlight is on me to not only finish, but also finish strong. I know how proud my family will be of my accomplishment and how rewarding it will be for me trying to obtain a decent job in the

Ever since I was little, my mom stressed me to be a leader. By this she meant don’t be like everyone else and look up to a person, but be the one who everyone looks up to. Being a leader isn’t an easy thing to be because you must be a role model 24/7. In my opinion I’m a leader academically and physically. Excelling when it comes to grades and on the football field. When it comes to grades I display leadership by giving help to those who are struggling in an area I’m eminent in. Also, being the only boy in my grade level to be inducted into the National Jr Honor Society should mean something as well. But in football, this is the area where I display the most leadership. One example, would be last season in the championship game. My team

In five to ten years, I am uncertain of where I will be, which career I will have, or what activities I will be a part of, which I believe to be the truth for most entering college. However, the four pillars of Purdue University’s Honors College are, to an extent, already instilled within my character. I am certain that with being an Honors student in the future, I will be living a life only possible through cultivating my already existing character traits into columns to support not only my education, but my life after college.
Being a leader involves more than just being in charge of a group. Good leaders make decisions, but great leaders involve their communities in the decision-making. There are many challenging, yet rewarding, aspects of being a leader. The greatest of these is inspiring change in a community. As a leader, my goal is to influence people around me and have them care about their community as much as I do. Our society tends to have an individualistic approach to most situations. True leaders ought to inspire passion in others to make a difference. Knowing that your leadership motivated a community to take action is a feeling surpassed by few others. In fact, I believe if every leader encouraged their communities to become passionate, our world would
I have a few career goals such as becoming an ER registered nurse and a nurse practitioner but fist I want to be an ER registered nurse. For a long time now I could just envision myself in the blue scrub running out to the ambulance as the EMT rushed the patient into the hospital. And successfully collaborating with a team of people to save someone's life. I have always been the type of person that receives an immense amount of gratification from helping others. I believe this goal is realistic due to my preconception of the career, love for helping others and experience.

Whoever just waits for chances to knock their door is unlikely to reach success; therefore, taking action as well as working hard is the key for us to catch more
Leadership is the art of empowering people around you to achieve a goal. As a leader I want to help others become leaders themselves. I firmly believe that by leading based on my values this will be accomplished. I have had many leadership influences throughout my career. Some of them showed me the way I wanted to someday lead and others showed me exactly how not to. Either way, both were influences. The people in my life that influenced me in a positive way always empowered me. They raised me up; they believed in my potential even when I could not see it for myself. They supported, cared for and listened intently to my concerns and needs. Goal after goal was met, trust was evident and the moral was positive and uplifting. There
