WHY DO YOU WANT TO BE A MEMBER OF LEADERSHIP FELLOWS? 

I want to be a member of Leadership Fellows so that I can learn skills that will help me in my time at UNC Charlotte now and as a professional once I graduate. I think the skills I learn will be useful when working with other students in the classroom, in my organizations, and in my personal life. I would also like the opportunity to meet other Niners and be able to learn from the other students who will be in the program. 

NAME ONE LEADERSHIP QUALITY OR SKILL THAT YOU HOPE GAIN THROUGH THE PROGRAM AND WHY YOU CHOSE IT?

I would like to gain confidence as a result of Leadership Fellows. I sometimes hesitate in group settings to speak up or share my opinion, and I would like to be better at that. I feel I have what it takes to become a good leader, but I need to work on growing my confidence to step out of my comfort zone more, to speak up more, and to be okay if the group does not like my idea. I think if I grew my confidence I would become more involved on campus and take risks for opportunities that I have not always gone for because I don't think I'll get them. If I can improve my confidence I can become a more engaged and effective leader on campus. 

DESCRIBE 2 OR 3 OF YOUR PERSONAL STRENGTHS.

Three strengths I possess are adaptability, dependability, and honesty. Adaptability– I am able to do well in a variety of settings and groups, and I can always find a way to find my role and to support the group. I also manage obstacles well and I can adjust when something unexpected occurs or changes. I try really hard to be dependable and consistent. When I say I am going to do something, I follow through and I actively work to meet deadlines for everything. I do really well with maintaining my commitments and I pride myself in being someone people can turn to when they need to make sure something gets done. And honesty, I think honest connects to dependeability, but I always try to be honest with everyone. If I am asked what I think, I won't lie and I value transparency when working with others as well.
