Student ePortfolio Examples:
Crystal Ling "...it is evident that some of the more pertinent qualifications of a leader includes honesty, competence, knowledge, technical skills, creativity, patience, a future-oriented mindset, and the ability to inspire others. Leaders who embody and use these qualities to motivate a group to accomplish goals epitomize the character of a great leader."
Lauren Belzer “Leadership can be defined many different ways. People, situations, and values all modify each term. Personally defined, it is the ability to take initiative within a group.”
Gilbert Worotikan "Proper leadership also proves that a person has qualities that show that a person is stern and in charge while showing that he or she is humane and shows flaws but overpowers them with his or her strengths."
Caitlin Weisz "Leadership is a quality, not a title."
Elizabeth R. Zelen "In order to grow into a successful leader I now realize that it is extremely important to develop the personal self-assurance, motivational impact, and internal vision to propel others to work together to accomplish a collective goal. However, as a true leader, you must not only identify the strengths and weaknesses of your teammates, but also uncover the different traits that determine how you will lead."
