Student Council (SC) has given me the opportunity to lead not only on an event level, but as the president of the student council. It has open my eyes to understand the different needs and working styles people have when leading.
I found myself developing from a follower to a confident leader, through the many events like Annual Council Sports Meet, where I was first appointed as the Overall i/c. Being given such a large role as a member was quite stressful, but I managed to pull through and it was fun creating a Sports day for the whole council.
Being in Student Council has made me more open minded and it has helped me to understand others better and to be more comfortable working with others
I have built the confidence to speak to anyone in public and be more people oriented compared to being more focused on myself or on the task or the process.
I also got to truly understand the need for a family, and what this means as part of a council.
I used to not understand the meaning of TEAM till working with my Exco's in SC. Before joining SC, I thought a team just meant - spreading and dividing the work load, so it was not so stressful for one person.
However, I found that it means ‘Together, Every, Action, Matters’.
