I never imagine that life processes sharpen my leadership and grow my willingness to contribute my knowledge to the society, particularly in Educational field. In Senior High School, I was a head of Musical Group. My ability in finding the notes and how I taught my friend made my teacher trusted me to handle my group. My responsibillity was make sure we can play the music beautifully and well-arranged. So, all teachers and students can enjoy the ceremony while it is being held.
Jump to my univesity life's, I was always be a group leader in handling presentation. It started when no one wanted to be a leader and they pointed each other, I ended the situation by pointed myself as their leader. Slow but sure, I got used to it and always offered myself to be the group leader. I learned to arrange the group, finish the project on time, taught them how to do presentation and found the solution together. Also, making sure all the members know their part and other's in general. This process has been built my confidence and i have realized i found my passion in Public Speaking. I didn't think twice when my lecturer offered me a opportunity to become a tutor in Presentation Class. I taught them how to do good presentation and it showed a very good improvement. I felt like i success to make them be better in their presentation.
After finishing my university, i have worked in some schools and I have been promoted in my current work as a manager because the owner had moved to another city. I thought this was my big chance to sharp my leadership wider. My responsibilities are included, handling the office, tutors, helper and make sure the administration and marketing run properly. In my hectic days, i was lucky that i got the chance to join a program called "Kelas Inspirasi" this program aims to aspire the students what they want to become in the future. In a one group, we had various people who work in the different field and they tell to the students about their work and responsibility. I explained about the honor to become a teacher and can help youth generation to become a successful person in the future, especially as a English teacher. It was not easy to break their mindet about English and Teacher because most of them don't get remarkable experience for both of side. Luckily, after my presentation some students who didn't know their obsession showed their interest to become a teacher and start realizing they need English for their future. It makes me think the struggle is just begun and I have to fix the wrong mindset about teacher and English.
