A Day in the Life of a Diamond Leader- Brenda Kelly

  1. What has been your motivation for getting involved in the Diamond Leader program? How long have you been a Diamond Leader? In an effort to use my free time efficiently, I decided to become involved with a student organization last year. I selected the Diamond Leader Program because it offered a variety of ways to enhance leadership qualities.
  2. How has the experience impacted you? My experience as a Diamond Leader has helped me develop a greater sense of direction with regards to my personal and educational goals.
  3. What has been your fondest memory?One of my fondest memory as a Diamond Leader involves a community service project. We made no-sew blankets and cards that were distributed to a local hospital. Arts and crafts are one of my favorite hobbies and it is always rewarding when your time and talents are appreciated by others.
  4. What is the best part of being a Diamond Leader? The best part about being a Diamond Leader is the feeling of belonging.
  5. Do you have any tips/advice for any future Diamond Leaders? My advice to future Diamond Leaders is to be prepared to challenge yourself.
