JOURNEY

    • February 9, 2019 – When asked to define servant leadership, how that applies to his life now, and his future career, Emmanuel said: “Servant leadership is a type of leadership which focuses on improving, empowering, upgrading, motivating, and encouraging the population. The leader will work as a servant of his or her community and his or her main ambition will be to strengthen the population. I believe this kind of leadership is the most productive one because it enforces, through empowerment, upgrading and encouraging the population to offer their best outcome. So as a Christian, I know how Jesus lead his people and I want to imitate him. That being said, I dream to make my surroundings better, so I will use servant leadership as a model to guide me towards this goal.”

He was determined to succeed in both of these areas so he worked hard on time management, and was able to accomplish a lot this last year! This summer, he is looking forward to seeing his family, reading books that didn’t have time to read while he was in school, and hopes to get a job to gain experiences and save some money. He is also looking forward to spending more time with God!
