tHE HORIZONS LEAN FORWARD, OFFERING yOU SPACE TO PLACE NEW STEPS OF CHANGE. mAYA aNGELOU
I was born and raised in the sunny state of Florida. I am the youngest of three brothers and the first generation to attend college. Upon graduation in May 2014, I will receive my undergraduate degree in Organizational Leadership and a minor degree in the Spanish Language from Southeastern University in Lakeland, FL. I work hard to maintain core values, and even harder to obtain future goals. I am aware life is full of opportunities, but more importantly I am self-aware which enables me to be efficient and effective.
Values and Beliefs
I value change; it is through change that I begin to understand self, others, and the relationship between. I value the solution and in a team setting, it should be a collaborative effort. Diversity of thought is essential to personal and organizational growth; I can have good ideas, but together we can have great ideas. I assume the best in others and through my example, I believe it can be reciprocated. Ultimately, it is my character which distinguishes the traits that shape my words and actions, and the integrity of my character is found in Jesus Christ alone.
Future Career Plan
I am currently seeking knowledge and experience in the areas of Organizational Leadership, sustainable agriculture and micro-finance. I plan to lead a not-for-profit organization which connects resources such as education, Agriculture, and Micro-finance loans with poverty stricken countries for the purpose of generating self-sustainable communities capable of re-generating to diminish global poverty. The fiber of my being strives to leave things better than the way it was first found. I Plan to steward The gifts, skills, talents and abilities I have through serving others.
Interest and Hobbies
I am adventurous, and love to be active. I enjoy rock-climbing, scuba diving, and the occasional sky-dive. I spend as much time as possible with family, finding the wisdom in the stories told by grandparents, playing games or activities which involve thinking, strategy, or process. I have a heart for over-seas missions and try to serve somewhere at least once a year. I enjoy reading self-help books as well as, singing, going to the symphony, a good home-cooked meal, and of course laughter!
