Position: Service-Learning Facilitator & Site Leader
Q: What are your leadership roles on campus and in the community?
A: Through the Office of Student Leadership I am currently serving as a Southern Leader and as a Site Leader for a Spring Alternative Break Trip. I participated in a Winter AB Trip and was a BUILDer over the summer. I am also one of the Drum Majors for the 2015-2016 Southern Pride Marching Band season.
Q: What do you find most meaningful about your work?
A: The most meaningful part about my leadership work is definitely the ability to meet and work with so many wonderful people. It’s rewarding to get to meet other students who have the same intentions as me to make the most of their college experience here at GSU. I love getting the chance to constantly meet new people, giving Georgia Southern a greater sense of community for me.
Q: How do you hope this work might help you in your career, and in your life?
A: I hope that being involved in leadership during my undergraduate years will help give me greater confidence in pursuing my future goals. My professional aspirations of becoming a doctor will be more attainable and more meaningful if I learn how to make the most of it through my leadership.
Q: What’s one piece of leadership or engagement advice you’d like to share?
A: You have to take risks and step out of your comfort zone. Eleanor Roosevelt said “Do one thing every day that scares you.” I have tried to adopt this mindset, because I think it is really important to constantly challenge yourself and strive to be greater. Try a new food, introduce yourself to a stranger, start your own club club, or go out for that leadership position. Every day you have the opportunity, so choose to be great!
