Summary

Being a leader is something I have been very good at over the years and like to help people. I am a good leader and have been on for sports, church, and at summer camps. Attending Lethbridge College has helped my knowledge in Criminal Justice giving me the upper hand on those that have not. Knowing different skills and knowledge about policing in Canada has helped so much. I also take my learning very seriously and always put forth my best effort. Working in a team is another strength from not only basketball, but from working at my past summer job as a basketball coach. The people I have worked with over the past couple years would say that I am very serious at work, but know when to have some fun.

Skills

Skills

Technologically Smart

Working with all sorts of different types of laptops, cellular devices, tablets, and all other sorts of electronics is something I am good at. Being able to understand how to work them and what features they hold. Growing up in todays society has given me this boost since I am always using either a computer or cell phone. 

Teamwork

Being apart of several teams in my community for basketball has helped me increase my teamwork skills. Most of the time I was with the same guys and worked hard together but sometimes had to adapt to others that would join us. We would be together for over 9 months at a time during the seasons and would have to overcome challenges and work as a team. I would also be apart of a church group and we always were moving up as our age went up. We were a team by setting up different activities for not only us but for all the church. 

Communication

In college I have taken a communications class to help me with interviews and also a class to help with public speaking. I currently am a salesman that goes door to door selling home automation. In doing this it gives me the opportunity to talk with all sorts of people and understand what kind of a person they are once they open the door. In not knowing who is behind the door I have to change my introduction to meet who they are and what I can give to benefit them.

Athletic

Being physically active ever since eight years of age. Participated in soccer, community basketball and high school basketball for years. Excelled in physical education class in high school. Gone to elite basketball camps over the summers and stayed fit when off of school. I have stayed fit while at college and gone on working out and running aside from my physical education classes. 

Leadership

Being a leader has been something I have done a lot of. I was a leader in my church for the age group of boys I was with. I was a leader at camps that I had attended in the summer as a youth. I was a captain for my basketball and am now in charge for my church basketball league. I also was a leader (coach) for the basketball camps that I help out with for the past two summers.
