"The Leadership Mentor Program has taught me that everyone can be a leader and that leadership can be developed. . . We all have strengths in different areas so we can use those strengths to achieve goals and strengthen team unity."
Chelsea Hamlet, Sophomore Communications Major
Chelsea is a member of the Black Student Union, WNYO and this past summer was a Laker Leader for the New Student Orientation Program.
The program allowed me to "obtain a mentor with experience in my field of choice. This mentorship fostered a unique way of thinking and allowed me to meet other mentees who challenged me to grow.... This is a great way to meet new people and push yourself to the next step in leadership roles on campus."
Cydni Williams, Junior Marketing and Graphic Design double major
Cydni is a Residence Assistant in Scales Hall and is the Assistant Director of the Student Association Programming Board. She serves as the Chair of the Student Advisory Council for the School of Business, as an Intern at Step One Creative, and was a Teaching Assistant for Art 207.
The program taught me that "no one is born a leader. The most influential leader that you know worked and improved on their leadership skills before they became the person he/she is today. . . . Everyone is a leader in their own perspectives . . . your willingness to step up when the need arises makes you a leader too."
Barbara Ciceron, Junior Political Science and Communications double major
Barbara is the President of the Political Science Club, Assistant Director of the Student Association Programming Board, a McNair Scholar, Resident Assistant, Adopt-a-Grandparent volunteer, New Orleans Alternative Break Volunteer, as well as a Peer Leader for incoming EOP students. Barbara was also named Ms. Multicultural 2011.
"I was excited to learn the true meaning of leadership. Whether it was the skills to be a leader or the positions I should take now to further my knowledge of leadership in the future, I wanted to learn it all during my freshman year in college. . . . My main accomplishment was being able to identify my strengths and use those terms during my three job interviews I have had since finishing the program. That showed people my confidence, that I know what I am best in, and that I can use those strengths to excel."
Nicole Azero, Sophomore Accounting major
Nicole is involved with clubs and organizations, internships, and study abroad. She was involved in the SUNY Oswego Green Team (environmental club), Habitat for Humanity, and was a New Orleans Alternative Break volunteer after Hurricane Katrina.
