I was nine years old when my family visited Greece.
Every night for three weeks before the trip, my older brother Peter and I sat with my mother on her bed reading Greek myths and taking notes on the Greek Gods.
Having finally perfected the "floating paintbrush" trick, I began work as a full time volunteer with the five and six year old children last June.
It is here that I met Jane Doe, an exceptionally strong girl with a vigor that is contagious.
The certain qualities a person possesses can potentially determine what kind of leader they will be.
I believe that a good leader possesses the qualities of dependability, integrity and perseverance.I not only came to love the excitement of learning simply for the sake of knowing something new, but I also came to understand the idea of giving back to the community in exchange for a new sense of life, love, and spirit.My mother's enthusiasm for learning is most apparent in travel.To be a leader means you have a lot of responsibilities, so people have to depend on you to take care these responsibilities.Sometimes, being a leader comes with hard decisions, but it’s your responsibility to make those decisions.She's the kind of person who has thoughtful discussions about which artist she would most want to have her portrait painted by (Sargent), the kind of mother who always has time for her four children, and the kind of community leader who has a seat on the board of every major project to assist Washington's impoverished citizens.Growing up with such a strong role model, I developed many of her enthusiasms.To be a leader you must possess these certain characteristics so that you are able to lead fairly and justly.Without integrity and a good set of core values, how can we be able to trust our leaders.Perseverance ensures that the job done and the people will be led properly.So on November 6, when you go place your vote for the new President of the United States of America, remember what makes a good leader.
