Anything you can give me advice on would be helpful.
Q: Everyone belongs to many different communities and/or groups defined by (among other things) shared geography, religion, ethnicity, income, cuisine, interest, race, ideology, or intellectual heritage. Choose one of the communities to which you belong, and describe that community and your place within it
A:If someone observed my team and tried to identify the captains, there's a good chance they would correctly identify two girls. However I can almost guarantee they would fail to identify the third; me. In my two years of being a captain, I've never become the stereotypical captain that tells others what to do. While I will provide direction when necessary, I much prefer the "lead by example" philosophy. At practice, you will rarely see me telling teammates what to do. Instead you will see me start working on a task, and if you wait a few seconds, you will see others join me.
Many believe, "captain" is a title of power given to an individual. I believe it is more of an earned label signifying someone is one others look to for guidance, example, and support. To deserve this label from my teammates, I know I have to make myself a model for them to follow and earn their trust and respect.
To do this, every day I try to improve myself and be the best I can for my girls. I never want to ask of them what I am unwilling to do myself, so I show them the path they must take to achieve their own success. As they have see me work hard and succeed, they have begun to do the same, and the entire team has grown stronger. My role in my team may be one described as quiet, but it is no doubt effective.
