I feel like communication skills and being comfortable with many views are both great necessary qualities to have when dealing with a diverse college campus. I am very open minded and respect other people’s views even though they might not agree with my views. I possess great social skills and find myself very personable. I get along well with multiple different people which I think would be a great addition to the counseling team. While in college, I have demonstrated my
I walked over to tables that had to do with my major and got the information I needed on what skills I need to succeed in the specific major, what type of jobs students have with the major, and much more. Majoring in Human Development and Learning, I must have great speaking skills and must work well with children. I love children and am very excited to see where I can go with my major. In the University College, I can have a concentration in Pre-School and Child Care Administration and this would help me with exactly what I want to do; owning a daycare center and a dance studio for
I view being an area officer the same way as being an officer in a massive local FFA chapter. By being an officer in essentially a larger chapter, there are various skills I can learn to help with leadership in my chapter. Communication between chapter officers is crucial to the success of a chapter, and I believe that by being an area officer, I can learn communication, leadership, responsibility, and several other skills or traits that I can also apply to my role as a chapter officer. In conclusion, there are three basic reasons why I want to be an Area 15 officer.
Since I was a little girl I have always been told to be on top of my studies and to go do what I love most. However, with college I am able to take on and obtain new knowledge to further my studies and do what I love most. I see college as another stepping stone into a great life and future. Being able to attend college is a blessing, this will help me understand and see the different perspective of the world around me.
This was a big moment for me because I never knew that what I was doing as an RA could be/lead to a professional job that is so oriented around helping others and being involved in the college lifestyle. I absolutely love being an RA and working with students and being a leader to them. I also truly love getting to work with others who have the same passion and drive that I do within this job. I believe that STARS is something that can help connect me with others in the realms of student affairs. I love getting to work with the people here at UNI, but I also want to learn more from others who may have completely different experiences.
It wasn’t until my family started to move around and I was transferred to difficult schools that I truly found the feeling of a sisterhood. At each new school, I always gravitated towards finding a supportive and loving group of girls. These girls made me feel so welcomed and comfortable with being myself. I feel so grateful to say that in every place I have lived I have found life-long friends that could make any place feel like home. Upon reflection of the several amazing friendships I made growing up, I realized these connections were a sisterhood.
Please describe any relevant leadership experience and/or employment history that has prepared you to become a Resident Assistant. Essay responses should be in paragraph form and you should fully articulate your leadership experience and how it has prepared you for the RA role. Having many leadership experiences and serving on multiple committees where working with students and administration is necessary, I believe that I am well prepared to become a Resident Assistant. These committees include my high school’s Discipline Committee, where I worked with administration to provide fair and rehabilitate punitive actions to students, along with the Duke Student Health Advisory Committee, where I work with other students to advise the Student Health office and to develop projects that benefit student health on campus. In addition, I have gained many useful leadership skills from becoming an Eagle Scout, especially after organizing and leading a large
I am interested in being a Link Crew Leader for many reasons. My sister who graduated in the class of 2016 was a Link Crew Leader and from hearing about the duty of being a Leader and how much fun she had excited me to want to become one. Another reason I want to be a part of Link Crew is because I remember my Link Crew day when I was a freshman, and how much fun it was. It assured me that I made the right choice in picking where I would spend my next four years. The activities helped me open up and meet my fellow classmates, which made my first few days of school much easier for me.

From there, I dove into as many community service opportunities as possible, including sports, school clubs, and mentorship programs. While my responsibilities as freshmen class vice president were small in the grand sceme, my experience on the student council were perhaps the most enlightening. Primarily, I learned the importance of teamwork and inclusion because I had to work with other class officers to organize events, including spirit hall decorations and my high school’s annual air guitar
Next I enjoy planning programs. At programs I find out more about residents interest, goals, and stories. Programs allow for important educational aspects to be shared and discussed as house such as current events, health and wellness, and community services.

Furthermore, the Peer Advisor community helped demonstrate our concern for our students through our numerous activities that we planned outside of the classroom. The Peer Advisors organized many outings for our students. This time with them allowed us to connect on a more personal basis, and allow us to talk to them about their college transition. Being a Peer Advisor has been so rewarding in that it has allowed me to care and concern for these students as they settle into their journey at
The boys and girls club has many great sports activities to join in to help get kids out of the street and become more active in their community. They are there for you when you need them the most and you make so many new positive friends through the activities they have. Camp voyageur was my favorite camp they made you feel wanted and you never felt left out the camp leaders helped you become a leader and made you feel more independent. Boys and girls club have shown me a lot in life and I want to further my education so that someday I can give back to them. With all of my reasons why I want to further my education the most important reason is so I can give back to my family and community one day.
Reminiscing on my lacrosse days, I would not be the person I am today without that experience. By being involved in such a pivotal role, I gained maturity, leadership, time management, communication skills, and most importantly, confidence and learned how to believe in myself. To be an RA, it is essential to have all these. My time management skills I have thoroughly developed will help me balance school, outside activities, and the demands of an RA. Additionally, the maturity, leadership, communication skills I developed serving as a liaison between coaches, parents, and players will transfer to the RA job benefitting the hall director, other resident assistants, and the students.
