Displaying Leadership In the following paragraphs I will be talking about the time I displayed a great state of leadership and gave a service to other people. This instance happened on April 17th 2017 when I was asked to be a squad leader for our J.R.O.T.C battalion at the principles review march. This was a surprise for me being only a one year cadet, the following is my experience.
As a result of being in this position of leadership I have learned responsibility and leadership skills.
ntroduction I have completed a self diagnostic profiling task which has helped me to analyse if my behaviours, understandings and skills tend towards management or leadership. I had to score myself between 1 and 5, with 1 being closer to management and 5 being closer to leadership. Out of 24 questions 21 of those questions were scored closer to leadership. My results show that I am a leader.
I believe that I am capable of both types of leadership. Most of my experience being a leader comes from sports. I currently play football and basketball. In football, I have always been a quarterback, which means I have always been the vocal leader of my team. As a quarterback, it is my duty to make sure that everyone is in the right place and knows their role in every play.
Overcoming “The” Struggle I don’t recall having a hard time learning how to read. It was one of those things that just came easily to me for some reason. For the most part I enjoyed reading as well. The only time I didn’t enjoy reading was when I didn’t understand a certain word or a certain phrase.
Hopefully in the coming years I can do more service and help more people. I would consider myself a leader, especially in the classroom. For example, whenever we do labs in science I find myself taking control and assigning tasks for the other members of my group to follow. I am also a leader when it comes to group projects in
A Challenging Life Transition No matter how prepared an individual may be or expecting of a death, to lose a family member to death can be a traumatic experience. The grief process is a difficult process. However most understand that death is a natural and expected life event (McBride, and Simms, 2001). With that said it usually does not make the death of family member any easier to absorb emotionally. Although I have familiarly and awareness because of the deaths of my Father and Sister, it does not mean that I am comfortable with death, or have all the right words to say to comfort a person in the grieving process.
Soon after I crawled out of my hole of self-pity, I thought to myself, “First thing’s first, I need to get a job so I can support us.” And that’s exactly what I did. I now work at Speedway, and even though it’s not exactly my dream job, thinking about Izzy makes every mess I clean up, dish I wash, and every insane ranting customer worth it. I wake up every morning, and put on my uniform with pride, and gratitude that I have a way to provide for her. Having Izzy has forced me to learn pivotal values in life, such as responsibility, self-worth, selflessness, hard work, and keeping a positive attitude. Predominately, she has taught me to improve the way I treat others(working at Speedway might have something to do with that also). She has truly
Lani: I was helping for someone’s project for COMM 245; I was in the video lab, in the studio. I was on campus and decided to contact everyone I knew who comes to the school. I remember I sent out a snap saying guys I think there is a shooting, be careful and then I started sending out individual texts to people making sure they were okay, like hey are you good? Stay out of an area. I didn’t know how many people were getting shot. I just knew it’s not good and that we have to be careful. At first, the campus was like we are unsure, just be careful, and then it took some time till I finally got an email that said stay on campus and were held there for about two hours, I just kept recording.
In my brief life, I have overcome a lot of adversity. My mom fled Mexico with her three young children to escape domestic violence. When we came to this country we had only a few personal belongings and the promise of a better future. We came to this country and lived in a small trailer with no toilet other than a bucket, and no shower except for the one that was lent to us from the kindness of a stranger, our new neighbor. As a single parent, my mother had to work day and night to support us. While she was working long hours cleaning people’s houses, as the oldest of three children, I had to quickly learn how to cook, how to clean and take care of my siblings. From getting the kids ready for school, helping them with their homework, and
It was a taciturn gloomy morning, the year of 1862. The 12th of September. At the end of it, I might be with my family again or buried someplace underground. It was my time to go into battle as soon as I finish saying goodbye to my loved ones. The tears slid down my wife’s face and my daughters lingered into their mother’s arms to cover their dripping faces. I gave everyone one last family hug as my wife said to me “Be careful”.
When I walked out of the room, he should have expected to be greeted by the entire Cataula Family waiting for him to see if he had advanced closer to be the next Planetary Sovereign. However, he never expected to see his daughter off to the side looking ready to hurt someone with tears in her eyes. Everyone on the planet knew there were only a few Viceroys left on the listing for testing. Now that all Twelve Leaders of the Hierarchy conducted the testing as one, family members seldom seen or even known were traveling to the City of the Planetary Sovereigns. He stood tall, removed all emotions from his face, and stormed forward.
The Transformative Trip Thomas Jefferson once stated: “If you want something you’ve never had, you must be willing to do something you’ve never done.” People to People is an organization, which has a special component referred to as a student ambassador program. This program is responsible for teaching student ambassadors the importance of bridging cultural and political borders, through education and exchange, with the aspiration of creating global citizens, and making the world a better place for future generations.
I’m a first generation american on my father's side and second generation on my mothers. In large part, who I am today, is a direct reflection of them immigrating to this country. I learned hard work, determination, and commitment through stories they shared with me about the lives they built when they arrived to America. I’m proud of my roots and the legacy that my parents and grandparents have instilled in me and much of who I am today is a reflection of their own hard work.
