One of the initiatives that i took up this year was stepping up to be the leader of the programming group when the computer science club when to code wars in Houston. Our leader jack was not able to go with us so i stepped up and led the group. I was extremely excited to be able to be a leader because that is what i was wanting to do the entire year. At the same time i was also extremely nervous because i worried that i wouldn't be able to handle the leadership position and i would show up to the competition and forget everything, not being able to do anything. Before i left to go i had a serious talk with jack and was able to get over my nervousness and go determined. Another one of the things i did was step out of my comfort zone and help other students that needed help programming their projects. It took me a little while to work my way up to helping anyone in the class but i started with people i was friends with and worked my way out of there to helping anyone when they needed help.
