My Mission Statement 2 To live optimistically and willfully and to make sure the values of integrity and honesty radiate throughout every component of my life. To never stop learning and continue living my life with an open mind. To respect every single person I encounter and never turn my back on my goals and dreams.
Leadership Style 3 Communication & Connection Hardworking Attitude Teamwork I am very good at communicating to others what I think, what I’d like to achieve, what I am feeling, etc. On the same level, I am very good at relating to others and understanding them. I truly thrive off of my relationships with others and I make it a point to connect with and understand others. I am persistent. I like to get things done and done so in the best way possible. If I say I am going to do something, I will do everything in my power to do it right. I truly enjoy working with others and I like to work with each person’s individual strengths. I hate seeing one person do all the work and even when someone thinks they can’t do something, I enjoy finding a way for them to help out the team. I am good at encouraging others to work hard and I try my best to do so.
Leadership Strengths 4 OptimismConfidence I am a positive and optimistic person in every aspect of my life. This is a great quality because when I envision something to end well, I do everything in my power to make sure that my team and I will get that result. I also think my optimism and excitement in a project translates to my teammates and helps them get excited about the task or project. This is something that has taken me a while to work on. I have always been a confident person, but I now know how to add this confidence to my leadership skills. When I believe in something, I believe in it all the way. I am not one to second guess myself, my group, or our final project.
Things to Improve On 5 Stay humble and confident, but realizing that it is importan t to demonst rate both character istics in everythin g I do, and I do not have to worry about coming off to strongly in one area or the other. Finding balance in confidence and humbleness Do not always take control, learn to take the back seat. Trust others to get things done Delegating Take each day at a time Keep a good work/life balance Learn to say “No.” Taking time to relax

Carries his values and principles with him throughout every aspect of his life. Lives in a way that I see myself living, taking each day as a gift and doing the best he can in every area of his life.

Mentorship Experience 8 My mentor, Kelsey, and I have created a bond already though only really getting to know each other for only one quarter. Although being three years older, she treats me as an equal and holds my opinion high, as I do hers. We are very different but also very much alike which makes our relationship very fun. I have found that I have learned a lot from her without even realizing it. She is one of the most genuine and real people I know and through learning from her, I have realized just how important those qualities are. MentorMentee Growth
Leadership Experience 9 Senior Vice President – Delta Sigma Pi I have completely organized and led two of the largest events in our fraternity. I have also put on an entirely new rush and ran it successfully. I have learned how to work side by side with the president and how to maximize our strengths for the Fraternity. Junior Executive Member – Select Leaders I have learned how to work and lead in a true business model. I have people reporting to me, and I report to others. Accountability has played a large role in this position, as well as learning to work with others at different levels of business. Teaching Assistant – Ohio University This position has taught me how to manage time, organize others, and do my job to the best of my ability, not only for myself but for other because their grades are involved. It has taught me how to lead a large group of people that I do not know, and how to maximize each other their strengths. Team Lead– Cluster/ Simonyi Consulting Center I naturally took the role as lead consultant in for my projects for the Simonyi Consulting Center, where I learned to work with cultural diversity and different ways of working. I led two groups of Hungarian students and delivered the best projects possible to our clients. Through cluster, I was the team lead in my first group and learned how to motivate peers and organize and delegate work in order to deliver good work. Director of External Affairs – Consulting Fellows This organization has taught me how to take control with a group of others, and no set President. The board of Directors is taking this organization off of the ground, and it is very beneficial because it is the first time I have worked with a new organization and creating culture.
