Winter Haven - This month, on The Student Leader of the Month, we want to feature a student from All Saints Academy in Winter Haven who has used her leadership role to make a difference in her school.
We had the pleasure of interviewing Ms. Jayla Fairley, and this is what she shared with us:
NEPG: Which grade are you attending right now?
Jayla: I am currently attending 12th Grade.
NEPG: What leadership position are you responsible for?
Jayla: I am a Head of the Student Ambassador Club, Vice President of the Diversity Club and Senior Justice of the Honor Council at All Saints Academy.
NEPG: Tell us about how your leadership approach has influenced others around you.
Jayla: My leadership approach is to just be friendly and welcoming to all. This enables me to have a measure of influence with my peers. In upholding my integrity and kindness, I would hope I influence those under my leadership to make the right decisions and possibly become a leader themselves.
NEPG: What are your plans for the rest of the school year?
Jayla: As college acceptances roll in, I am trying to focus on the next level of my educational career. I would also like to capture and enjoy every moment of the rest of my senior year. I am very excited for the upcoming basketball season and all of my club activities.
NEPG: What would be your message for younger kids who are planning on taking a leader's role within their school/community?
Jayla: My message to younger kids who are planning on taking a leadership role in their community would be to constantly push yourself to the next level. In gaining endurance and learning how to persevere, you will be simultaneously leading those around you to do the same. You will be helping others to go out of their comfort zone and to aid others in their own times of need. It is understanding that the little things that you do are the ones that build your character and make you a leader in the community.
