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…

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…

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…

I Mean…Naw……

Leadership puts you through a lot of decision making. You have to decide what’s best for your group as well as yourself, and you have to decide whether or not to step in when participants are working together to resolve a problem. If you ask me, I’d tell you time and time again, leadership depends…

PRE- D

As I prepare to take off, I gather my bags, cram last minute for my exam, and I’m getting hyped up. LAS takes a annual trip to Detroit in the second semester to educate future leaders on the leadership skills we’ve learned this year. In Detroit, poverty is such a big issue. There’s a lot of…

Saw the Rest, Chose the Best

From the moment I found out my mom and grandma were in sororities when they were my age, I was bound and determined to go through recruitment. I’d dream about finally having sisters I could love (and steal clothes from). At Central Michigan, you get put into “Gamma Chi” groups which is basically you and…

To The Family Who Doesn’t Understand

Now before you all freak out, I do love my family. I’m just having a moment… I was told India is such a different country than America. More poverty, more people, more noise. You can’t truly understand India unless you travel half way across the country and experience it for yourself. So that’s just what the…

100L(s)… Psych Edition

You’d think that Psychology isn’t something that could relate back to Leadership… think again. Having all my LAS cohort in the same class was something I looked forward to every Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. In the course, Prof. Prewett helped us connect the importance of Psychology and leadership together. Every essay question we’d have would…
