Throughout my yearly SALT program (fall 2015 to spring 2016), many different tasks were accomplished while gaining exponential research experience and teaching experience throughout the SALT program.
The tasks that were established by my SALT program mentor (Dr. Scott) started in October. One of the first tasks was evaluating minutes from an American Association of University Women (AAUW) club meeting that I had the pleasure to assist with during my yearly SALT program. The assistance toward AAUW was helping officers from AAUW raise money for a women shelter in Calcutta India and help them spread awareness about the plight of women in India. Raising money for the women shelter in India was done by assisting with a bake sale with AAUW that was held on November 19th, 2015. Before the bake sale event, I assisted with creating a bake sale filer that was distributed throughout the campus. At the bake sale event, I assisted by helping instruct the KSU first-year learning community students how much we are selling the bake goods, where the money was collected, and where the student attendance sheet was located for the bake sale as well. While collaborating on the bake sale event, assistance toward the Academic Extravaganza event was done as well.

Assistance was done by creating an informational presentation about the event that was distributed ...

However, the tasks that in my perspective was very beneficial was helping format tests in February and March based on the questions they provided for me, establishing the information for Humanitarian Incentive for Peruvians (HIP) service club at Kennesaw State University(KSU) and assisting Dr. Scott with the Teachers of psychology in Secondary Scholar (TOPSS) competition for high school psychology students. Nonetheless, without the SALT program I would not have been able to have such a beneficial experience that would help me in my academic career.

- Through the University Leadership Development Programme (ULDP), I seek to supplement my developmental experiences in preparing myself to be a future CEO. My past experiences and involvements in leadership had mainly focused on the theme of volunteerism and philanthropism; however, outside of the comfort of the college’s or university’s funding, I realised that there is a disconnect between my idealism and the reality as the changes that I wish to implement would not be sustainable.

From the guest speakers to the projects, the class has always kept me thinking. First, the program was very informative. I took in so much information over the course of the semester that I sometimes feel overwhelmed, but in a good way.... [tags: student leadership essays]
