"In order to be a successful leader you must be able to leave a situation in a more positive state then when you found it. If the situation has not changed, you are not leading but simply managing."

- Dr. Andy Herdman

I am a current student at East Carolina University. I am a hard worker and love learning new skills. I can listen well and communicate efficiently. I have strong ambitions and never settle for anything less than my best. I am willing to go above and beyond my written duties to help in achieving goals that have been set. I am a team player and have been told that I am a natural leader.

I have been taught that in order to lead it is necessary to challenge the status quo, create a shared vision, enable others to act, model the way, and encourage the heart. Leadership is a service to those that follow and it is the leader's duty to ensure the followers have the tools and understanding of what needs to be done.

Volunteering and Influencing

As a member of the ECU Football team, we try and give back to our community through a variety of events. We hold an annual fan appreciation day, a pigskin pig-pick'n Bar B Que event, and we volunteer at the Boys and Girls Club.

I am currently leading a group of teammates to volunteer at a local Boys and Girls Club. I took it upon my self to organize a group of team members and schedule a day and time that was compatible with each teammate's class schedule, lift times and the Boys and Girls Club's schedule.

In efforts to give back to the community and influence teammates to participate, I have helped inspire members to take part in philanthropic organizations and have sparked ideas to help give back to the community.

I am excited to participated and assist in making these ideas a reality. I look forward to seeing the overall change in our community and the organizations we involve ourselves with.
