I went to NSLC from Aug 2 to Aug 12, and it was a good experience for me. I learned about leadership and medicine, and had fun at the same time. By the end, I had made many friends, and took home things which I can use at home. For my reflective essay on NSLC, I am going to select three topics on what I have done in NSLC and analyze them. I will describe what I have learned from these experiences. I will be describing the day we did the Ropes Challenge Course.11th.Next, I will be describing the Leadership Box that we did on Aug 4. I will also be describing the speech that we had to do on Aug 11, and prepared for from Aug 3rd to Aug 14 Finally, I will be describing All Out, an activity that we did on Aug 11. In all of these activities, I learned about leadership and the characteristics be a leader. I also learned how to go on in spite of your fears and anxieties. The day that we did the Ropes Challenge Course was Aug 3, at 1:00 to 5:00 pm. It was a hot day, about 90 degrees, and to tell the truth, I didn’t want to be there. I thought that it was too hot to do this and that it would be boring and do nothing to help me. Also, I had been hurt when I had done this and had to be sent home, so I didn’t want this to happen to me. However, it was fun when we did the Ropes Challenge Course. We first started off with trying to learn other people’s names, then we did jump rope, in which all of us had to jump the rope once in order to finish the activity. At first, I was a little cautious, because doing this same activity had made my leg hyper extended and had caused me to be sent home, but I did it anyway and nothing bad happened. 1
they don’ t allow their fears to take control of what they have to do. However.Then we played a game in which a chicken was thrown and we had to catch it and run around in a circle. three of us had to operate the ropes and one of us had to go on the ropes. but we finally did it. But I went on. Next. This also taught me that I could face my fears. I learned a lot during these activities. conquering your fears. However. and so I wasn’t all that happy when it came to be my turn. or worse killed. I don’t like heights. It taught me about trust. because everyone else had gone on and I did not want to seem afraid. I went and decided to stop about halfway there. I thought that it was tiring at first. we did an activity in which we had to roll an egg on poles into a bucket. It taught me how to work together. I thought that this was fun. but in the end it was worth it when the egg fell into the bucket. and that I should not allow my fears to override what I had to do. Among these was balancing a stick on our index fingers to bring it to the ground. Finally. and then I went down. It took a long time. I went and went. and patience. but later I thought that it was fun. and so I did. and we divided into teams of four. because I had to trust the people that were operating the ropes. and how to do things for the better good. we divided into teams and played a game of Freeze Tag. We then went inside a building that was close to the Ropes Challenge Course. and how to follow other people for the common good. including teamwork. and on many attempts. I winced at the thought of going on the ropes because I thought that I might fall and get hurt. because I thought that I had gone far enough. we finally did it. It taught me that also all leaders have fears. Next. until I went to the top.and did some activities. 2 . we went to the ropes course. This also helped in leadership because it taught us how to be leaders. This helped us to work as a team and showed us the value of teamwork.. my friends yelled at me to go on. It took almost an hour to do it.
The speech that my group had to do from Aug 3rd to Aug 14th took a lot of time and patience. but as the two minutes passed. such as why I sometimes act the way I do. it told you what kind of person you were. because a leader has to know about himself before he or she can lead others.The Leadership Box also helped me to learn about leadership. and based on those questions. At first. First. I found out that I am a Koala. I tried to put as much emotion into it as I could . and one who can absorb a lot of criticism. no matter what you think other people think about what you are about to say. and we had to talk together. we met in a classroom and had to read a selected passage. and 3 . Then we answered the question. because I tend to analyze some things before I do them. We had to sit and fill out a form. even if they are afraid to say something. I thought that this was more and more interesting. I thought that this would be boring. I learned that leaders should not be afraid to talk when they know that they have something to say. It taught me about working together to solve a problem and about speaking up to express your opinions. a person who has a lot of patience. That was a surprise to me. because I always thought that I was a Owl. This was an interesting activity and I learned a lot about myself. I tried to do as good a job as possible because I did not want to mess up or fail. which means that I am a listener. When it was my turn. This taught me about a leader. Then we had to vote on who we wanted to go and say the speech. Then the person who were lecturing asked us some questions and told us to try to answer her in two or three minutesWe had to work together in order to solve the questions in two minutes.
I learned that leadership is about stepping up and doing what you have to do when people are counting on you to do your responsibilities. Finally. I went up there nervous. the All Out activity also taught me about leadership and the characteristics of a leader. we had to do research on the topics and on the first day. Then we had to vote. Then I thought that I did not need it. without screaming. so I put down the microphone and began to speak. and I had to go onto stage. spoke about leadership and told us that whoever wanted to speak was free to speak. and Ms. I 4 . we didn’t get much research done. and I was chosen to do the main body. Jackson. I spoke as loud and as clear as I could. and I picked up the microphone. but I was determined not to let my nervousness take control of me. Finally. The NSLC students went into the auditorium and sat down. I saw that people were beginning to go to sleep and I was afraid that people would go to sleep. Leadership is also about taking charge when you are responsible for a group of people and not letting your fears override what you have to do. So I spoke as loud and as expressive as I could to wake people up. We finished. but in the next four days. the day came. The next days. I was nervous at first. the director of NSLC. and so people listened to what I had to say. and I had to put together all the information. my group began to put together the speech. I tried to be emotional and loud.many people said that my performance was good.
Then he called me a pussy and told me that everyone was going up there and so I might as well go up there too. I learned that leaders should not be afraid to show emotion. One by one. I learned that leaders should conquer their fears and try out new things. the time was up. but by the time I got up there. I learned that leaders should be able to take responsibility for the group and to complete their tasks. went up there. I went up there. and that leaders should conquer their fears. I learned that leaders should speak up if they want to be heard. and to my surprise. Finally. I finally decided to go up there. In the Ropes Challenge Course.thought to myself that I wasn’t going to speak because she did not make it mandatory for us to speak. I was determined not to go up there. He said” Why not. because leaders are people too. she said if you wanted to go up there. in the All Out activity. I learned that leaders should not be afraid to show emotion. and many of them cried. 5 . My roommate. I saw many people go up and talk about their experiences. because I did not want to cry in front of the NSLC. I learned a lot about leadership during this time. you could.” I said that I didn’t want to go because I had nothing of importance to say and besides. In the speech. In the Leadership Box. he cried. After 10 or 15 minutes of telling me. He then sat down and asked me if I wanted to go up there and I said no.
