Babysitting will help me enhance the duty as secretary in many ways. For one, it teaches me to be responsible. I cannot bail on a parent when they rely on me to follow through with what I say. This reflects back to SCA because all members are a working unit. If I do not show up, it affects the entire association. I will understand that I made a commitment and SCA comes first. I also learned how to be a good role model to the kids. This will encourage me to do my best in SCA because I want to be a role model for the other students in the school.

Time management was also a skill I had to learn while babysitting. When it came to summer assignments and field hockey practices, I had to make sure I had enough time to finish my summer assignments efficiently. While babysitting I also learned how to solve conflicts very fast. Such conflicts included me being sick.

For one, I am outgoing. I love to answer questions, have better relationships with my peers, and help people out in any way I can. This will help me by making me seem approachable and allowing me to solve problems with people when they confront me about things. I am also honest. Leaders need to be honest with their team and whoever they’re leading, or else the team will not trust s/he. If a team does not trust each other well and is not cohesive, it is a disaster waiting to happen. The other members will not second guess what I say because they will know I am going to tell the truth; therefore, allowing me to become closer with them and creating a tighter bond. Communicating is also a quality I have. This will strengthen me and the association by allowing us to effectively work towards the same goal. It will cause less confusion, therefore allowing us to complete the task faster. I am also confident. This will help me because the other members will know, that I know, what I am talking about and they will trust my ideas more. Also, I am committed. This will help me because my team members will know I will not leave them; therefore, they will trust me more. Also, I am approachable. I am always happy to answer questions, accept criticism, or just talk. This will help me by establishing good relationships with the people around me, creating a better atmosphere to work in.
