JOURNEY

    • February 9, 2019 – When asked to define servant leadership, how that applies to her life now, and her future career, Jessica said: “Servant leadership is a way of leading people by example. It’s giving to your maximum for the benefits of the subordinates as a whole. In servant leadership, a leader not only coordinates but also takes part in implementation of the planned objective. A servant leader assumes full responsibility for the achievement of set objectives. Currently, I call myself a leader because I’m a group leader in my class. I am able to contribute to the better performance of our group without waiting for others. In my future career, I might be appointed as a leader and regardless of the position or the number of people I will be leading, I will be a good servant to them by being humble, cooperative, and hardworking.”
    • November 19, 2018 – Jessica wants to be known as a God-fearing woman! This semester she hopes to study hard and improve her grades!

BIO

Jessica’s mother inspired her as a young girl to study education. Married before completing high school, Jessica’s mother went on to beat the odds to complete not only high school, but university as a married mother. Her family’s focus on education drove Jessica and her siblings to succeed in school and dream big.

Jessica is pursuing a degree in Biomedical Laboratory Sciences, with a goal of one day starting a project in her village that will address the issues of poverty and poor standards of living. She also plans to concentrate time on mentoring youth and encouraging them to pursue their dreams.

In her spare time, Jessica works to make her community a better place. She tutors local school children and educates her neighbors on their rights.
