The quality of leadership...

...involves making difficult decisions,...

…making mistakes and learning from them,...

… and being an ordinary person with extraordinary ideas.

A leader is...

"The art of leadership... consists in consolidating the attention of the people against a single adversary and taking care that nothing will split up that attention."

--Adolf Hiter

"We should not look back unless it is to derive useful lessons from past errors, and for the purpose of profiting by dearly bought experience."

--George Washington

"I never wanted any of this. I never wanted to be in the Games. I just wanted to save my sister and keep Peeta alive."

--Katniss Everdeen

Am I a leader?

I believe I'm a leader. Just as any typical teenage boy, I play video games and a particular one I enjoy is PlanetSide 2, a massively multiplayer online strategic first person shooter, focussed on territory control and teamwork. I've led several squads and platoons into battle and am able to think strategically using probability and odds. I am a good math student and I believe I can use my knowledge and stubbornness to lead. In what, I'm not yet sure, but I believe that I can.
