“We are the voices of the voiceless.”
This is the message of Kristin Sandoval, an alumna of St. Edward School (SES) as she inspired her fellow youth to also become servant leaders of the community by sharing her leadership journey.
In the first session of “Thrive: Leadership Development Series” conducted by the Student Affairs Council of Senior High School November 20, Sandoval, an active Galing LNC Youth leader, empowered the Edwardian youth to “not only serve for yourselves, but also for the community and the country.”
“It’s been my happiness already since I stepped into servant leadership kasi narealize ko na nakakataba pala ng puso kapag nakakatulong ka sa ibang tao; na makikita mo rin silang masaya dahil natulungan mo (sila) sa paraan ng makakaya mo,” Sandoval said.
Sandoval also provided tips for the students of SES, “Share and inspire others,” and she quoted John C. Maxwell, “Leaders become great not because of their power, but because of their ability to empower others.”
“In this type of set-up, we all know na limited na ang ating mga kilos, but it will not stop us in serving and leading for the student body and for the community as well,” Sandoval said as she shared her 3E’s: Empathize, Engage, and (I)E-nfluence with the community through online.
