“I became a PLE not only to further enhance my presentation and teaching skills, but to learn more about myself through a leadership initiative. Leadership to me is first believing in yourself and then believing in those you are working with.”

“I became a PLE because I wanted to become more involved on campus while also strengthening my leadership skills. To me leadership is guiding others to reach their full potential and collaborating effectively to achieve a goal. As a PLE I have the opportunity to help individuals and organizations reach their leadership goals too.”

 

 

Candice WhiteIMG_7671

Senior, Kinesiology with Minors in Dance and Psychology

“I became a PLE because I love sharing the knowledge and experiences I’ve had. I myself cannot change the world, but together we can make history.” Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it’s amazing what they can accomplish.” –Sam Walton”

 

CourtneyCourtney Cooper

Senior, Sociology Major with a Criminology Concentration (New Media & Design)

SamHitam (Sam) Alsharif

Senior, Chemistry & Biology Major with a Concentration in Biotechnology

“I became a PLE because I wanted to showcase how my fellow Spartans are already leaders in their community. Leaders come from all around the world and all backgrounds but they all want to inspire their peers and be role models. One person cannot change an entire community, but they definitely can be the spark that starts the fire! So always strive to be that spark for us to do something bigger altogether.”

Senior, Social Work Major

“I became a PLE to strengthen my public speaking skills and to become more involved with the campus. Leadership to me means that you are assuming a role in which people look to you for many reasons.

Senior, Biology Major with Minors in Spanish and Chemistry

“I became a PLE to learn and exercise my leadership attributes. “Leadership is being bold enough to have vision and humble enough to recognize achieving it will take the efforts of many people — people who are most fulfilled when they share their gifts and talents, rather than just work. Leaders create that culture, serve that greater good and let others soar.” – Kathy Heasley”

 

IMG_7623Terrell Saunders

Senior, Sociology and Media Studies Major

Leadership is a skill and process in which individuals go beyond the expectations in order guide others to a common goal. To be effective leaders, we have to be open and confident to use our voices as well as listen to what people have to say. I became a PLE because I wanted to be part of a group that shares the same values of service, leadership, engagement, and teamwork. Not only do I want to grow as a leader, but I also want to encourage students to become leaders in the community and to communicate with students to learn with each other.”
