Surprising Mentee

Ever since I knew I was going to Disney World for the first semester of my sophomore year, I knew I’d be missing my mentee’s first semester at college. I knew I’d be missing family dinner dates, helping her schedule, all the stuff mentors do for their mentees during the confusing first semester of college….

Hot Dog, I’m Moving to the Mouse’s World

It really hasn’t sunk into me yet that I move to Orlando, Florida this Friday. THIS FRIDAY. As in, TOMORROW.  I come back around the first week in January of 2018. I’m so beyond excited to learn what it takes to run a company as powerful and as successful as Walt Disney did. There, I…

Finding Mentee

Mentee, Hey there, I promised you this blog post a while ago before you knew who I was, sorry it was a little late! I know your first impression of me was horrible. Meeting you was a wild goose chase for Teddy, Katie, and myself. I’m not sure if I told you when I met…

Adventure is Out There

For my first week of Summer vacation, I got the privilege to spend it with 11 other Central students in Immokalee, Florida. We went on an Alternative Break for the issue of education. Being a future educator, I was thrilled when I got into the break at 7:30 am. From there on out, we had weekly meetings talking…

History for the Leaders

This semester, I took History 110L. In this class, it’s focused on American Leaders, and each semester we had to write a big paper on how the people we chose were leaders in history. The first one I did my paper on Lucy Stone, who was a feminist- I learned a lot about her in…

My Freshman Year: COMPLETE

Freshman year had a bunch of whirlwinds of emotions. I’ve gone through a lot this year, some thing people won’t experience in a lifetime. Starting from the beginning, I moved in with my bestest friends, and we had the awkward uncomfortable roommate talk of “are you okay with having people over after midnight?” and all…

And This is my Philosophy!

I’ve always been one to put others before myself, and that’s why my leadership can be different than others. My leadership philosophy is putting others before yourself. I’ve learned through my life that this is the way I resort to whenever anyone needs help, especially in crisis situations. Tending to others’ needs before my own…

How Am I a Mentor Already?

Ever since coming to college, I’ve been wondering how I’ll ever become a mentor. I could barely take care of myself it seemed like. How could I possibly guide someone else to success when I have no idea of what was going on? Luckily, being at college for an entire year helps you grasp tips…

Goals

As a leader, I have high hopes and big dreams for my future. I want to make people as happy and comfortable as possible while I’m leading, and I want people’s voices to be heard more. I think it’s upsetting and unsettling when I hear people wanting to change something, but not feeling confident enough…

Leadership With a Chance of Potatoes (pt 2)

After we were done with Jalen Rose, we drove to Quicken Loans to have a presentation along with pizza (YAS)! We had a presentation on why we should apply for an internship at Quicken Loans for the upcoming Summer. Everything was amazing, if I weren’t so busy this summer I’d move out to Detroit to…

Leadership with a Chance of Facilitating (pt 1)

Detroit is one of those cities you think of and instantly start talking trash about. You talk about how much poverty Detroit is in, or you talk about the danger of being in a city like Detroit. You think about the crime rate. We all look at Detroit and see the bad things. I fell…
