Diversity has been an integral part of the fabric of my life. Growing up as an Army Brat was very multi faceted. One of the most positive elements was the exposure I received in my schools and on post. My childhood neighborhoods were rich with different cultures, races and religious backgrounds. Many of my oldest friends share unique traditions that to the average town, would seem remarkable and even unfathomable.
Growing up here, I was exposed to a plethora of cultures, ethnicities, religions and lifestyles, and I was always encouraged to follow my interests and do what makes me happy. The Hudson Valley accepts everyone that enters it as they are and for whom they are. Growing up, I was taught to value people because they were just that - people. Someone's religion, culture, ethnicity, etc. no matter
MacArthur was a very brave and commanding general. His Thayer award speech acceptance passed the torch to the next generation of leaders. Throughout his speech, he uses logos to show what it means to be a military leader. He goes on to say how he will always feel “a sense of pride… which will be with me always: Duty, Honor, Country.” He uses this statement as a logo and achievement for these cadets to look up to. The three words “Duty, Honor, Country” also show logos because they are what every man or woman stands for in the military.
Growing up into my own person I took these values with me, but I adapted more values into my personal and profession code of ethics along the way. I believe that how you live your day to day life does have merit to how you work within a personal setting. My few personal codes of ethics I have adapted throughout my life are; I will not discriminate, I will remain loyal and always forgive.
Even though Garnet was learning more from his teacher, Keeper was also learning from him. One teaching no one should ever forget is their tradition. Each tradition of any race, can teach so much things to their people. Listen and learn well, and they can pass it
It is a huge responsibility to make sure a child, or sometimes an infant is safe at all times. I am always trying do the right thing, so the child can have someone they can look up to. I am a leader in the sense that I never turn down anyone when they ask for help. I should be accepted into the National Honors Society because giving my service to people, whether it is in school, home, or the community is an extremely important aspect of my everyday
Veterans like myself, young and with determination, are enrolling more and more every year in universities. I am proud to have serve this country and I am glad that it changed my life for better. Although being in the military may have had some negative aspects of it, I would never change my decision of
We each have our own stories just like the soldiers, and come together as a whole to represent something bigger than ourselves and to serve. The FFA motto is “Learning to do, doing to learn, earning to live, and living to serve” and FFA members passionately embody “living to serve.” We serve our communities, states and nation relentlessly. The organization has allowed me to filter my passion for creativity and technology to bring new passions for young leaders to pursue. FFA has inspired me to dedicate myself to make an impact for future generations to come, just like every single one of the soldiers buried at Arlington Cemetery has done. My great grandfather inspired me with his uniform, and today when I put on my own uniform I am serving 649,355 FFA nationwide members as well as my
Added to the supervision and oversight of their daily duties, I as a leader am there to help, guide and give that listening ear when needed in whatever capacity. Ensuring that they are aware of all the military and or personal options, and opportunities that are available to them are taken advantage of. Progressing in their careers and a clear path for their future is another aspect of my leadership philosophy that I hold first and foremost. No junior soldier that has passed through my path, whether they have been assigned to me or just work under the same command/unit has not gotten the three infamous questions that I have come to ask throughout my career: 1. What are your goals in life?
This has also inspired me to go into the military when I get older so I could give back to my family so they won’t have to be scared of paying the bills anymore. I have a lot of challenges that I am still going through, but I would try to reach my dream, no matter what it would
Like most things, we adapt and sometimes fall into different areas of leadership as needed. “My most rewarding experience as leader was being able to address the new commanders and soldiers prior to their first deployment,” Ssg N.Rawn Tarrant IV. This was marked as such an honor because it showed how much his perspective and knowledge was valued and it was a great service needed for them entering such a big journey. Leadership varies and based upon our interview there is no solid evidence of book vs experience. In fact, individuals are able to now be developed uniquely in all facets of
