Even if a
leader can be a boss, not every boss is a leader. A leader is not a person like
the head of a large company who gives out orders and treats his employees
roughly. No! This kind of person cannot be a leader.
A leader is
someone who leads others towards a common goal. A leader is someone who has the
power to influence others without giving out any orders, and who can say
“Follow my actions” rather than “Follow my orders”. It is
very important for a leader to have experience serving others or working for
free so that they will be able to understand and respect others who do the
same. People who have never served others can become a boss, but not a true
has the potential to become a leader. Somewhere inside of them, everyone has
qualities that leaders need, but not all people know how to use these qualities
in the right way. However, anyone can develop their leadership skills through
experience and put them to use in everyday life.
example of working for free, I would like to tell more about my personal
experience working as a volunteer. As I have already mentioned in my personal
statement, I was a volunteer at the EXPO 2017, which was held in Astana.
Hundreds of Kazakhstani students from cities all over the country gathered
together to help our nation, and I was one of the volunteers who contributed to
this grand event.
Due to the
large influx of visitors from all over the world, there was a lack of
volunteers at some parts of the exhibition. In connection with the need for
more help, I participated in different volunteering activities. Most of the
time I spent on the playground working with children from five to ten years
old. My goal in the future is to become a teacher, and on the playground I
gained valuable experience in the pedagogical sphere, which has helped me to
communicate with and understand school-age children more. At the same time, I
demonstrated the usefulness of sharing my skills with children and expanding
their knowledge through educational games.
motivation that I have for being a volunteer is that I feel myself needed. It
makes me feel better that I can repay the community that I live in and return
mercy to all the people who have helped me throughout my life. Everyone, no
matter poor or rich they are, benefits from the community, and volunteering is
one of the few ways for me to give back to the community and express my
appreciation and gratitude.
