Ever since I was 9 years old, I always have worn a "C" or "A" on my chest. This letter represents sportsmanship, pride, honor, reliablity, and leadership. With this letter on my chest, I lead my teammates by what I say and how I do things. Come game time and come drop of the puck. My actions reflect the way we need to go into each and every game and I believe that is vital to a team's success.
I was nominated amongst 1600 students to take a new class at my school called Leadership Seminar where we learned about different leadership styles, what makes a good leader, and the TRUE definition of leadership. In this class Mr. William Brazener challenged us to think outside our comfort zones and our results were baffling. We soon became to realize people such as Mao Zedong and Benito Mussolini were some of the best leaders of their time! This class helped me evolve as a leader and helped me discover my true purpose for leading.
Every year during spring break, I spend a week living at my church with 900 other high school kids and we build houses in the inner city for homeless people. These efforts are important to me because I believe God gave people privledged life to share with people who unfortunately didn't get the same gift. Giving back has always been a huge part of who I am as an individual. Every year on Christmas Day, my parents and I go to the local soup kitchen and help out. Furthermore, I go to community homes and sing carols with my teammates for old people. I love seeing the smile on someone else's faces when you just give back and take time out of your day to do a good deed.
