In order to be a good leader, there are many admirable traits one must possess. Everyone will tell you that a good leader is responsible, confident, and communicative. Communication is necessary as a leader strives to convey ideas, expectations, and provide feedback for the growth of their group. Having the ability to manage many tasks and keep yourself accountable calls for a skilled leader. While all these traits are crucial, a leader must also possess qualities such as empathy and integrity. The purpose of a leader is to lead a group of people. Ensuring that people are comfortable to approach you, voice their input, and know that you are an honest individual is crucial in a righteous leader. A leader must guide their people when they seek assistance. This creates a strong relationship between the two parties which is key to continue a healthy, successful environment. In my prior leadership experience, I have learned the value of having empathy. I am able to empathize with others as a peer and a leader. For instance, many members become in need of getting their volunteer hours and activities in while dealing with other stressors in life. I strive to provide them with opportunities that will be suitable for them based on their situation. Not only has empathy made me a better leader, it has also made me a better person, preparing me to become a better caretaker as an aspiring healthcare professional.

Why do you want to be a HOSA State Officer?

I have been given the opportunity to be an officer in our school’s HOSA chapter for the past two years. Being Vice President has given me new knowledge and leadership experience. I have been able to grow as a person by interacting with new people, resolving disputes, and more. Prior to joining HOSA, I was very reserved and reluctant to express anything I had to say. However, HOSA has shaped me into the person I am today by giving me the confidence to assist others, express, and challenge myself. It has enhanced my love and appreciation for healthcare. Additionally, I have enjoyed serving as a mentor for those who have started their HOSA journey. Our chapter includes junior high members who are beginning to find their passions. Being there as a support to help guide them has provided me with so much fulfillment, and I aspire to help many more individuals find their passions. Throughout this year, I have proven to myself that I can handle the substantial amount of responsibilities that come with being an officer. I wish to further my journey with HOSA through being a HOSA State Officer. I put in the hard work by leading service projects, fundraising, or spearheading blood drives, and I wish to take this hard work ethic to the HOSA State Officer position. This wonderful opportunity will provide me with a great deal of insight, regarding my knowledge, leadership, and innovative skills, all of which will better prepare me, an aspiring medical professional, for my future in healthcare. I have seen the impact the current State Officers have made on HOSA, and I aspire to make the same impact on the next group of Arkansas HOSA members as a State Officer.
