2097 Words9 Pages
Responsibility has always been a key value I hold close to me. I believe in the importance of taking ownership of tasks I have been assigned with and to be committed to them. In all work (e.g. project work or CCAs) delegated to me, I will perform my duties to the best of my ability. Whether it is individual or team work, I constantly seek to improve and add value to my/our work.
Everyone is unique in their own way and this includes their way of thinking. In situations of differing opinions, I will remain open-minded and respectful of others’ views. By doing so, I am able to better understand people.

About My Leadership Goal (talk about leadership behavior)
2.1. One Leadership Position Goal I Want to Achieve in the Coming 2 Years
In the next two years, I hope to become part of SMUBE (SMU-Broadcast & Entertainment) executive committee as the president of the CCA’s sub-wing – Artist Management Team (AMT) aka. hosting.
2.2. Why This Goal
Back in my prior tertiary institution, I was provided with an opportunity to develop public speaking/hosting skills. Unfortunately, when I became a senior of my CCA, I was in my final year of studies. The lack of time did not permit me to contribute back to my hosting CCA. As such, I intend to continue my hosting stint in SMU and in time impart the knowledge and skills I have gained over the years to my future juniors who are as passionate as I was when I started. In my opinion, as AMT’s president, I will be in a better position to shape the CCA into a platform where we advocate self-development and teamwork. By doing so, my wish of giving back to the community that moulded me into the person I am today, will be
