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…

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…

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…

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…

LeaDeRs of Today

“Raise your hand if you’ve been told that you are the leaders of tomorrow. That’s bullshit! You are the leaders of today.” -Dan Gaken When I applied for the Leadership Advancement Scholarship, I had no idea leadership was this big of an institution. I have 48 other leaders surrounding me in Barnes Hall helping me learn…

Mentor and Me

Coming into college I was nervous. I was nervous to live on my own, I was nervous to be taking so many credits my first semester of college, and I was nervous about making friends (even though I have 49 people in my cohort of LAS). Most of all, I was TERRIFIED of moving away from my…

What the CUSS is an Echidna?

I left my parents at the car in the Barnes parking lot and bolted. I ran up to the third floor and walk into room 308 noticing the door decorations all over. “Welcome to Team Echidna, Molly!!” …what in the cuss is an Echidna? Naturally, I ignored everything and went to find my roommate who was… guess where?…
