Scholarship / Being a Leader Require Excellent Capability - Chevening Leadership Question [2]

Hello Everyone. Please help me to review my essay for Chevening Scholarhip. Thank you in advance.

Chevening is looking for individuals who will be future leaders or influencers in their home countries. Explain how you meet this requirement, using clear examples of your own leadership and influencing skills to support your answer.

my energy and effort as a leader

I believe being a leader require capability to work well and perform excellent communication with others in order to reach specific goals. And I believe I have played leadership role since I was in high school. Being a chairman in several student organization had given me opportunity to involve with many teams, communicate with many people and organize several events.

During college, I had an assignment to make a group of fifteen students to do community services in rural village. Within a month, we had to implement our knowledge as university students to assist the village's development in various sectors such as education, health, environment, etc. As a team, we were planning to make several solutive projects. One of them was to build a library to increase reading interest and knowledge of the children in the village. As the group leader, with limited budget and time, I managed to delegate tasks to every member of the team, coordinated with local authority to arrange the location and permit to build the library and also coordinate with several bookstores who could assist us in the project. I could not deny that there are some different perspectives among my team member and challenges during the process. But, fortunately I was able to resolve the differences by facilitating all the ideas of the team. And fortunately, with the help of so many parties, our team's effort were paid as the library was established and the local authority have committed to maintain the library.

Since the community service assignment, I became interested in volunteering activities, especially in education sector. Since then, I always join volunteering group such as Inspiration Class Jakarta, 1000 Teachers South Tangerang, ARSA Banten. In Inspiration Class Jakarta, I got the chance to explain to elementary student about my profession as an engineer and what engineering really is. I am so glad that I got to be a part of this movement because I could meet people who cares about others, who want to share the energy for community and furthermore I got the chance to contribute to Indonesia.

Worked in various types of teams during high school, college internship, and professional job in several institutions have taught me that communication and teamwork are very important to achieve goals. Having work experiences in ministry, private, national and international corporation, I have learned both how to lead and follow. I have also been appointed as team leader in my job. In this position, more or less, I have been required to provide advice, feedback, and a good example for the team.

These experiences have taught me so many valuable lessons. Not only about leadership, but also about sharing ideas and energy, engaging with people, and facing challenges together. I'm glad that my energy and effort meet someone else need. I want to spend my time and attention solving my favorite problems. And I believe Chevening scholarship would give me a great opportunity to grow more as an individual and also as a leader in the future.

I always understand that building network takes time and patience. Therefore, since college, I never afraid to take part in any positive activities. I have been joining several student and youth organizations, attending Annual National Conference of International Relations Students, attending Conference on Indonesian Foreign Policy and other positive. During college, as the chief of international relations students organization, I helped out my Alumni to established the union of international relations alumni at my university in order to easily engaging with other Alumni of IR Student. But I realize establishing this platform is not enough, I was initiating a meeting between active student and the alumni. Fortunately, with effective communication with the alumni, there were so many alumni coming to the event and share their experiences and knowledge to other student. And this event is becoming yearly event as the new student meet the alumni.

After graduating from college, I never stop building my network. I keep taking a part in positive activities such as volunteering, technological competition, conferences, and etc. I join several volunteering group that allows me to contribute to society by interacting and sharing knowledge with children. I believe that helping and caring others is the most efficient way to deep networking. But more than that, I just want my energy and effort meet someone else need. By surrounding myself with people who have the same passion and energy, I continue to grow as a person. I keep maintain a strong relationship with other volunteers by using traditional communication or even using social media like LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and etc.

I had also been participating in several digital competition like hackathon. It's a place where people who believe technology can make our lives better gather and share idea to each other. I was always exciting to work with people who work hard for Indonesia development. These experiences have given me opportunity to meet a lot of people from different background and also broaden my network.
