Have you ever had a really great year? One of those years you learn so much about yourself and discover capabilities you never knew you had?
This past year was exactly that for me and I owe it all to my role I had on the Candidate Advisory Council.
It was just a year ago that I was inducted into The Sales Centre and saw endless opportunities in this program. I had so many directions I could chose to go within The Sales Centre that made me more motivated than ever to try out for a leadership role. The next month I sat there in front of the incoming and outgoing cabinet, nervously explaining to them why I was a leader. I remember blurting out the most nonsense answer in between my jitters and telling them I have two personalities, and one of them said, “So… you’re bipolar?” as the entire room busted out laughing, including myself due to the most ridiculous answer, ever. The chuckles quieted and my face came down from its redness as I explained what I meant. Later that evening I got a call from Carly Turner congratulating me on my role as the Public Relations Director of TSC.
I instantly felt a wave in my stomach and could not wait to start my position. Little did I know this was the best decision I have ever made in my entire life, next to applying to The Sales Centre.
Being a leader in The Sales Centre means that you want to make The Sales Centre even better than it already is with thirty plus other motivated students. It got me off my freshman track and onto the fast pace track of developing my success. Since my leadership role I have gained confidence, met the most influential people in my life, became a great leader, became heavily involved in The Sales Centre and learned more about myself than I have ever learned by taking on any leadership role.
I cannot express how upset I am that I am not able to take on a leadership role this coming year due to taking a quarter off to intern next year. I plan on leading in The Sales Centre in other ways by doing all that I can to help whoever is in need of a extra hand.
CAC has completely shaped the person I am today and who I strive to be. This has been the best year of my college career thus far, and I 100% owe it all to my leadership role in TSC on CAC.
