1. What past experience do you bring to this position and how would it benefit KPU? One of my biggest accomplishments my junior and senior years of high school was my involvement in organizing and hosting many assemblies and school-wide events. During my junior year, I worked on a committee known as student support, and we were directly in charge of creating and putting on school wide assemblies. In this role, I learned how to organize large-scale events, find and invite big-name speakers to our school, write scripts, and get an impactful message across to all students. While these were very difficult tasks, I excelled at and enjoyed my position greatly. Individually, we were in charge of hosting one assembly per year. The assembly I hosted was about safe driving, so I invited our city police chief to come speak at the assembly. I gained experience contacting his officer and communicating with him prior and during the …show more content…
In many of the leadership positions I’ve held, I have worked as part of a larger group dedicated to making my school or specific program into a thriving community. I have experience working with students of all ages, school faculty, and professionals within my community. In my first two years of high school leadership, I served on academic recognition and student support committees. Although I excelled in my own way while serving on these committees, none of us were above another and we worked equally to achieve our goals and complete tasks. During my senior year, I served as the school’s ASB Speaker. In this position, I communicated directly with my teacher, the school’s administration, and the rest of the ASB team to ensure that the leadership class was doing the best work that it could and that I was doing the best job possible in my position. I also overlooked two individual committees and ensured that the members were working hard and was always there to support or assist them if

    Personally, I was given the lead role as group leader. This meant I had to be in constant contact with the owner and different workers of a company we were working for. Being fair, I had already had the chance to develop my professional communication skills during my Junior year internship at a local La Jolla company. However, communicating with real world professionals is one of the most daunting tasks you can do as a young person, especially in high school. I remember that we would draft emails, only to have them be revised by our teacher, John Bosselman.…

    It was small volunteering roles back then such as score keeping after school every day. Then in grade 8 I was awarded the “Student Who Makes A Difference” award by the staff members at my middle school.

This was a camp where potential leaders were picked out of their high schools all across Ontario and were sent to OELC for a week.…

    I joined the debate team when I was in the eighth grade and I did it all throughout high school because I really enjoyed the activity and being a part of a team. I was the captain of the team my senior year and this gave me the chance to step up and assume a leadership role and be a role model for the younger students just like the captains before me were a leader to me. Both of my debate coaches, Mr. Martino and Mrs. Shea, acknowledged how I was a strong leader and a role model on the team. They both wrote extensively about one of the main reasons I was such a good leader was because I worked hard and motivated my peers to do the same. One of the most important aspects of debate is all the preparation that occurs before the actual tournament and sometimes this part can be frustrating and lonely because it requires a lot of effort outside of school.…

    As I was trained to become open with each other and started to become someone that is able to listen to other people’s opinion, I was elected to become one of the senator of the DASB, De Anza Student Body, and the public relation officer of the UNICEF club. As the senator of the student body, I was interested in persisting my previous career in high school, which was creating big events. As a result, I volunteered myself in joining the Diversity and Events department and started to participate in the DASB events such as, an open mic day, Martin Luther King day, Presidents day, and etc. Similarly, as the public relation officer of the UNICEF club, I had the responsibility to promote and contact the students of De Anza to participate in our volunteer events such as making an event in the Ronald McDonald children house and participating in the breast cancer walk annually.
