Senior 29

There are a few ways that I have demonstrated my leadership abilities since being a part of 20/20 Leadership. In school, I have demonstrated my leadership abilities when I was the captain of my school’s softball team. During this time, I was in charge of warm-ups and getting the team ready for practice. I got to help teammates with additional things as well such as batting and catching. This was a time when my leadership skills benefitted me because I got to be a leader and have my teammates look up to me. I enjoyed being the softball captain and I am looking forward to the future and using my leadership skills. In the future, I hope to demonstrate my leadership skills by becoming a full time softball coach. It has been a dream of mine to try and become a softball coach for a while now. I have always been good at teaching and tutoring, and I have always had a love for softball, so after becoming a softball captain, I decided I wanted to be a softball coach. I could use my leadership skills to be an assistant coach of a softball team that already exists, or I could start my own team for kids or teenagers.
