I have experience in leading people. During 4th and 5th grade I went to Milton academy on Saturdays to attend a leadership class were we learned the qualities of a leader and in that class there were a lot of times where I had to step up as a leader. I gained a lot of experience from my time there and I still use it today. I moved here from Massachusetts where every student in 8th grade is required to complete a civic action project in groups. During that project I was considered the leader and I organized the group and split the work between everyone so we would complete faster. Our group had a lot of setbacks but we persevered and in the end we completed the project with flying colors. During this project I learned how hard it can be to be a leader. I also take initiative in everyday classroom groups. I hope to expand my knowledge in this committee.
