Every month, a Called to Lead student (or students) will be featured on our website and on Facebook. We want to celebrate and encourage our student leaders by recognizing them as Called to Lead's Student Spotlight.

What does leadership mean to you?
To me Leadership means being able to figure out what to do in a situation and taking charge. It means setting goals and taking on challenges. Leadership is being a role model to others, respecting the people you work with and being able to both communicate and listen.
What motivates you to be a leader at Etown
What motivates me to be leader is helping others. I enjoy volunteering my time and giving advise or help to others. As a student wellness advocate it’s my job to set examples and provide peers with the resources and help they need.
What are some of the most important qualities you think a leader should have?
I think that a leader should be respectful of the people he/she is working with. They should have a positive attitude, be committed to their work, and be able to communicate effectively.
What advice would you give to someone going into a leadership position for the first time?
I would tell them to believe in themselves and to never give up. Sometimes things may not go exactly as planned, but if you work hard and put in a lot of effort then success will eventually come your way.
