-Explain your definition of a leader.
"My definition of a leader is someone who can choose their own path in life and is able to push themselves to become a better person. They are able to influence and motivate others in a positive way and show them how to become a leader themselves. "
-What do you believe are your leadership strengths?
"I believe that I am a very motivated person who has lots of grit and integrity. I have grown as a great communicator, by sharpening my skills in many different ways. I am able to speak with new people without being shy, asking relevant questions and being engaged in conversations. These same standards will apply during all meetings with officials."
-What are your special interests or skills?
"My special interests and skills are sewing, running, reading, writing, and crafting. All of these have something in common they show and help me maintain my motivation, grit, patience and capacity to learn."
-Briefly list and describe any clubs, activities, or groups in which you have participated.
"I am in many different clubs/activities:
Girl Scouts - which teaches compassion, business, and integrity.
Interact - which is a community service club for teens that serves the community in many different ways. In this group I meet many new people who are older than me, I learn how to communicate with older peers, committee members, and other officials while serving my community.
Piano - this activity tests my mental strength and patience while learning, I have been doing piano for 7 years and enjoy it very much.
Active Church - I do many things to serve my church, I greet at the door which helps with my communication skills. I also help with live streaming for services, which helps with my concentration and anticipation of what will happen next in any situation. "
-In terms of school culture and school pride, in what areas do see a possibility for improvement at ILCS?
"I believe that something ILCS could improve in is finding ways to reach out to students who aren't able to communicate through zoom or any other platform. We could do this by having students possibly come by once a week to meet with teachers at allotted times for communication reasons. This would stick with national laws and still provide possible service to students in need, meeting times would need to coordinate with parents schedules."
