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  College?
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.
