I learned early on about leadership and what it can do for an organization as a Senior Patrol Leader in my troop in the Boy Scouts of America. I
was able to develop, organize, and lead a volunteer project creating a straw maze for a local not for profit orchard. This maze served over 8,000
children of the Las Vegas Valley as they visited the orchard.
As with scouting my academic leadership has also been a great strength. This past year I was able to participate in an AP academy. To be a
part of this academy you had to be recommended by your teachers. Taking AP courses as a Freshman with sports and scouts running
congruently I have still found time to mentor my peers. Participating in after school AP study groups. Fielding phone calls and text messages,
and assisting where ever I could so my peers and I could find success together. Teamwork is huge part of Leadership and how I have been able
to develop the best kind of leadership.
This leadership has spilled over into my soccer career too. As a goalie I am required to see the whole picture or end game that sometimes my
teammates are unable to see. Because of this unique view of the pitch I can lead my defense and midfield to better positioning to defend and
give recommendations of better defensive and offensive strategies as I can see the mistakes of the opponents. As I give recommendations the
team gains confidence and together we are able to succeed.
