Leadership for me has always come natural. However, the hardest experience of my life that helped build leadership was being a captain on my high school basketball team. After being a part of a team that won 5 games the year before, we needed discipline and needed a spark to turn the tide. My senior year, there were many hard moments. I had to suspend one of my best friends due to violating our team players code and even had to play bad cop. However, this led me to become not only a better leader but led me to strive in leadership roles and know myself better .
