Frankly, I wasn't born with the leadership qualities, nor could I influence others. I simply focused on training myself to be a good person and skilled professional in various fields since I always knew I had something special hidden within me. Once I enrolled in university, everything felt different as my fellow classmates were role-modelling me by virtue of being one who built himself better. I do believe that leadership is a skill which I call achievable ability. Now, I can admit myself with poise as a leader and influencer having been brought by my diligence to improve myself.
Currently, I am a teacher at an education centre. I have been teaching English and tactics of IELTS to ESL students since July 2015. One of the essential merits of a good teacher is influencing and leading. What makes me different is that I doubtlessly wish that my students fulfil their dreams, so my schooling was not words from the book; it was from my heart and experience. Influencing and leading my students we formed one community, and more than half of them achieved their goals. Because of the accomplishment, I was awarded 'Honour of the Duty' medal from Mongolian Youth Federation.
Let's go back to my university years. I made ideal choice to pursue Journalism at the premier educational institute, National University of Mongolia which could possibly nurture my writing talents. In fact, the reason I thought myself special was my creative thinking. I stood out of the crowd by writing articles of which not many could think. My talents can be backed up by the fact that I led some of my fellow students from my department, and we formed Young Journalists' union of Mongolia. Leading the community, we successfully organized variety of writing competitions within Journalism students and events such as football competition within workers in media industry in which I was the captain of our team.
Moreover, I dedicated my free time to head fan clubs of artists Camerton, Mongolia and TVXQ from Korea, and I was one of the founding members of Mongolian supporters of Chelsea Football Club, which later became Official Supporters Club of Chelsea with about 3000 members actively holding charity events as a community.
Lastly and particularly on influencing, I was one of the pioneers who introduced English Premier League to Mongolian audience. Translating and laymanizing exclusive programs of the league, I have illuminated and educated whole community by recreational activity. Further, I can proudly say that I influence people by writing lyrics. With the fact that 10 of my compositions came to life, my determination to help others and change their life for good influences our listeners to live better.
