Leadership development, education, skill building, and everything that goes into these, are never ending. There is always going to be s, a new problem to solve, a new way to solve that problem, and new theory, a new book, a need teacher, a new friend, a complete stranger you will meet once and never see again….all who have something new to teach us.
Even our greatest and most influential leaders through history, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., Queen Elizabeth II, President Donald Trump, if are truly great leaders would say they too had something more they could / can learn.
As I get ready to graduate and move into the working field I go with a grain of salt and the reality that although I have worked so hard and leaned so much in my journey to where I am now, I do not know everything and I am not prepared for everything life is about to toss my way. However, I will take every adverse moment, and every auspicious moment and an opportunity to better myself.
I will be a leader at work, as I continue to more up at the Rite of Passage. I will be a leader at home, as I help guide my younger siblings, niece and nephew through life, I will be a leader in my community, as I continue volunteer work and educate others on my passion of reducing youth incarceration.
I will continue to grow, educate myself, develop my skills, and help others do the same. I take it as a civil responsibility to assist others when they need it, and allow them to help me when I do. Together we will develop leaders, of thinkers, and diversity, we will build a community.
