A leader is someone who leads others. Someone who stands up for what they believe in and stand up for others. A leader has a vision. Leaders see a problem that needs to be fixed or a goal that needs to be achieved. A few months ago I met a young boy named Jordan. He is 4 years old and isn’t enrolled in school. When I found that out it was my goal to work with him so he would be ready for school. At first it was hard and frustrating but over the time it became easier.

But after working with him for a couple of months I showed him how important school really is and he is showing more interest in learning.
