Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

Leadership is defined as the ability to lead. It requires more than being a guide to others. Leadership is about being able to listen to others opinions and encouraging others to do something. Anyone can be a leader if he/she is willing to inspire others and if he/she is also willing to take challenges and overcome them through endurance. Throughout history, there have been many leaders who have done something to inspire others to take action. One person who comes to my mind is Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. King is a great example of a leader because he inspired his fellow African American followers to fight for their civil rights. He not only inspired African Americans but he also inspired women and Hispanics to fight for their own rights. By taking action like Dr. King, one can become a leader.

Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, "Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail." What this means is that in order to be a leader one must look for the opportunities to go in the path less traveled and leave one's mark to inspire others to take action. Leadership isn't about forcing people to follow your path; rather, leadership is about encouraging and inspiring others to follow you.

There are many ways to become a leader. One can become a leader by taking action in one's community. If you feel that something needs to be changed, then you should become a leader by helping make that change that is needed. For example, maybe you feel that your local park is filled with trash. You can become a leader by encouraging others to help you set-up a group of people who want to clean the park to make it a clean and safe environment for people to enjoy. It doesn't matter what you do as long as you do it because it inspires you to take action. So if you feel like you can become a leader why don't you follow the road less traveled and inspire others to follow you.
