Describe examples of your leadership experience in which you significantly influenced others, helped resolve disputes, or contributed to group efforts over time. Consider responsibilities to initiatives taken in or out of school.
The first time for me to experience a conference from the perspective of a trainer gave me a great insight into leadership. Together with my colleagues I was allowed to facilitate a workshop for twelve newly elected members, leading them in their first discovery of self awareness. I am happy how everything worked out well; all the sessions we had designed ran smoothly and I think we managed to put a clear focus on the unique possibilities of individual awareness and responsibilities: having remarkable leadership opportunities gave me the chance to start creative projects and thus also got intercultural experiences through the international networks formed.
Describe any special interests and how you developed knowledge in these areas. Give examples of your creativity-the ability to see alternative; take diverse perspectives; come up with many, varied or original ideas; or willingness to try new things.
The special interests I developed were those of leading a team, celebrating success, at times having to accept failure, facing many problems and at times one after another. I was at one time listening to a new member who joined during the workshop; give a small presentation on Taking Responsibility and I realized what an awesome experience every single member was living. For the first time in my life I was able to see the world from another individual’s perspective and this greatly changed me from the being judgmental to being very critical about different situations.
Describe the most significant challenge you have faced and the steps you have taken to address this challenge. Include whether you turned to anyone in facing the challenge, the role the person played, and what you learned about yourself.
Honestly, I at times get tired of having to hear myself talk, the main reason I had this problem initially was due to crowd phobia which was later dealt with through counseling sessions, talking to small groups and gradually moving on to the bigger crowd. My counselor then was very influential in helping me deal with my phobia and without her mot likely I would have never been able to face a big crowd.
