Service Above Self

Good Essays
Ever since I was a child, my teachers, friends, parents, and family have always complemented me for my

kindheartedness, determination, and of course my leadership. I have never been one to judge others, I

always work hard in everything I do, and love being able to be in charge.

My morals were built by people that surround me, specifically family. My mom has always taught

me that everyone is the same and not one person is better than the next. This is something that has

followed me throughout my life and is still one of my main priorities. I take great pride in being

open-minded and kindhearted, because I believe that most of the problems we have today is because of

certain groups of people feeling more superior than another, and people's lack to do good for others

with no benefit for themselves.

Another problem that is here is people are not determined to fix the problems that our nation has

and instead work around them. I am not one to walk around or run away from a problem, but I am

determined to work hard and to not only get rid of the problem but take initiative to

make sure it does not happen again. I believe that if everyone lived with this, the world

would become a better place by the minute. Unfortunately, the opposite is occurring at the moment and

new problems emerge as time goes by.

I am very proud of being a leader rather than a follower for many reasons. One, it gives me the

opportunity to express my views, beliefs, morals, and concerns. Two, I continually try to make a

difference in society for a greater good, and lastly, it gives me individuality in a good society. This

good society is a major factor in many of today's problems. People tend to do what other people do,

even if it is against their personal views. This leads to many problems because leaders with the wrong

intentions can easily be followed by those who are afraid of being their own person and leadership.
