I've learnt that leaders can change everything if they have that passion towards their goal and aim

Leadership and influence

In 2006, when I was in school I had selected as a Head Prefect of school by my Principle, where I was challenged to maintain the discipline. My main functions were to assign specific jobs to each prefect, check their performance, organize events and meet all the necessary requirements to follow the rules and regulations. I motivated all the prefects by setting my own example of doing work and how to concentrate on studies as well. I assigned task and checked it on daily basis as well as solve their mediated disputes. My team showed their best progress in every area and especially in every event such as Independence Day, Celebration on Annual Day, Sports Day, and the entire guest appreciated our school's discipline. Moreover, my team and I were always appreciated by my Principles and Teachers as well.

As a leader, I am always passionate about organizational activity. In 2012, when I was in university I had achieved a very great chance to upgrade my leadership skills. I volunteered to organize the event with the team which was known as the Usher Team of my university. Basically my main responsibility was to organize the convocation event as well as warmly welcome the guest including Rector and Director of university and parents of the pass out students. I motivated my team to practice a lot on regular basis. Even though we had a classes as well but I had to managed both things so I personally took a favor from teachers of all team member and convinced them that they will give us some little time after class so we can cover our missing part on that time. My team gave their full effort and the event was mesmerized.

Furthermore, in 2016, I volunteered to chair a fundraising for my hostel mate in my university, where I challenged myself to meet a fundraising goal of 10,000 Rupees. I convinced my peers as well as other students of university to give a fund so we can help a needy woman. Many people convinced and donate a huge amount that exceeding my fundraising goal by 75%. I had given that extra amount to her for her children's clothes.

To recapitulate, from my life experiences, I have learnt one thing that leaders can change everything if they have that passion towards their goal their aim. As a young leader, I have good accomplishments. Now I am looking forward for Chevening scholarship that will make my future bright and I will fulfill my aim as well as serve my country to more develop.

Your essay is pretty good. However, following are my suggestions to improve your writing further:

1. There are some grammatical and spelling errors. Work on it.
2. Use advanced structures.
3. Increase lexical resources i.e. use standard vocabulary as much as possible.

Thank you for your consideration.

Meka, you have a string of academic leadership skills. All of which are impressive in a non-professional extent. When it comes to your profession, it appears that you are limited or do not have any actual leadership and influencing skills. Basing your leadership and influencing skills on your academic approach alone will not be sufficient for this essay. This shows a lack of development on your part.

The development that I speak of is your professional development, You stop your presentation in 2016, as a host for an academic fundraising event. This is not as impressive as say raising 10 thousand rupees for a community organization that helps your people on a wide scale basis. By the way, such a reference should be made in your networking, not leadership essay.

Going back to your professional development, these sorts of essay are always helped by an indication of how you ascended the leadership ranks in the corporation, with a focus on one specific leadership and influencing instance. However, in lieu of that, the Chevening network will also accept a more recent and relevant community volunteer experience as a leadership and influencing explanation. The academic leadership experiences do not carry any weight in the application as these do not truly reflect on your leadership and influencing abilities in an uncontrolled setting.

I do not believe that this is the essay you should be using due to its lack of potential to describe your adult / mature leadership skills in a free for all setting. By a free for all setting, I mean a situation where your leadership and influencing skills have real complications and the wrong decision can result negatively for your objectives. It would be in your best interest to try and develop a more relevant and impressive leadership and influencing essay in relation to your application.

It is better to focus on one example/instance so that you can develop it in details to give a comprehensive picture of what you did and how you influenced a change that would otherwise not happen. If you don't have any professional experience, I think you should go with the fundraising event and describe how you convinced people to donate.
