Having the opportunity to be selected as a group leader at the University Scholars Leadership Symposium was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Most importantly, it allowed me to truly engage USLS’s mission to inspire confidence and empower change.
All selected group leaders arrived at the conference one day before all other delegates to attend training from the Humanitarian Affairs. The training was incredible! I was met the other group leaders, went over our assigned projects, and thought of ways to energise our fellow delegates to give their 100 percent on Service Learning Day. Collaborating with other group leaders from diverse backgrounds allowed me to improve my leadership, communication and critical thinking skills.
One of the main things I learned was to take initiative when things do not go as planned and always be a CIO — chief inspiration officer. A true leader comes up with new solutions and tactics when things take an unforeseen turn, while keeping morale high.
Serving as a group leader allowed me to get out of my comfort zone and champion a bigger purpose. Even though my time as a group leader just four days long, I grew immensely and learned the importance of serving selflessly. I encourage and challenge everyone to volunteer as a group leader. This experience will allow you to find your bigger purpose and make a powerful impact.
