I founded a public speaking after-school program for middle schoolers in East St. Louis, MO. I had to demonstrate strong oratorical abilities to lead by example. In addition, maintaining a respectful, productive classroom required social intelligence and constructive discipine skills, which are valuable leadership skills. I plan to become a lawyer. The ability to mentor others and deliver a clear, persuasive message will help me achieve this career. This experience showed that I am compassionate for the next generation.
