Today it was my day to be leader of the day or “Lider Del Dia“. At first, I was very nervous and wasn’t excited about having to step out of my comfort zone, but after watching my peers who had already been leader, and who had gotten partners, it unsettled me because I would have to be a leader alone. We started the day by allowing everyone to wake up between 8:30 am to 10:00 am. Once everyone had breakfast, we were given the opportunity to call home, check emails, or just hang out around the hostel. After eating lunch, everyone set off into groups to wander around parts of the city with an ambassador. After around 4-5 hours, everybody came back to continue our day. The discussions then turned serious after we had a Community Action Project (CAP) meeting about the realities of those who don’t have the same opportunities as others. Not to soon after, I went and passed the torch to the next two leaders. What I learned today is that I had nothing to be afraid of. Whatever you are feeling, it is very uncertain that it is or ever will be a problem. It is illogical to think that others will judge you when you are just stepping up and having fun. If you pretend that you have the confidence, no one will doubt you. Being a leader shows others that anyone can do it and anyone has whatever it takes; whether you are already a leader, in the progress, or anything in between.
