Q: What clubs are you in and what do you do in your clubs?
A: “I’m in Sophomore Class Cabinet, N-Teens, Dollars for Scholars, Academic Letter Winners, the Principal Advisory Team, St. Baldrick’s and my youth group. In these clubs I mainly do volunteer work for the school and around the community.”
Q: What makes you want to join clubs/why do you think it’s important for others to join clubs?
A: “I like joining clubs because I get to hang out with my friends and have fun. It is also nice to give back to the community and the school while building a resume for college applications. I think others should join clubs to not just look good for college or jobs, but to get to know other people and have fun doing something they like.”
Q: How do clubs affect your personal life and views?
A: “Clubs definitely keep me busy and active in my community. They help me see what a difference a little help can make for setting up events, taking down events or just helping teachers out.”
Q: What do you contribute to your clubs?
A: “For clubs like N-Teens, Dollars for Scholars and St Baldrick’s, I basically just help out where I’m needed and sign up for volunteer opportunities.”
Q: What leadership roles do you have and what do you do?
A: “For Sophomore Class Cabinet, I am one of the co-presidents. This means that I help come up with what we say during meetings, run the meetings and get our donation drive running.”
Q: How do you use your position to help/influence people?
A: “I use my position to keep others updated about upcoming meetings or meetings they’ve missed. I also try my best to get others to join Class Cabinet and try to keep them coming back for the years to come.”
Q: What has been your favorite activity/volunteer opportunity?
A: “My favorite volunteer opportunity was helping with Winter Formal. I passed out favors at the end of the dance and helped take down decorations. It was fun because I got to work and hang out with my friends.”
Q: Is it difficult leading an entire group of people? Why?
A: “It is a little difficult staying organized with leading others. There’s a lot going on with Class Cabinet right now, but my other officers and I have been able to keep up.”
Q: How do you hope people feel by your leadership skills?
A: “I hope that other people feel comfortable enough to ask me questions and give me suggestions on how I can do things better. I’m always up for listening to others, and I hope that they share their ideas with me.”
Q: How do you manage your time?
A: “Managing my time has always been kind of difficult with the clubs, school and homework. This year has been a little bit easier because my meetings are often on different days. However, I have had to sacrifice certain meetings for others in the past. I have to prioritize each club by the importance of the club and the specific meeting I’m attending.”
