My experience as a YES Teen has taught me a lot about leadership, teamwork, and organization. I have learned that being a leader takes more than just standing in the front of a room and looking like you know what you're doing. As a leader you have to actually know what you're doing and it is important that you know it enough that you can teach others. I have also learned that it is okay to ask for help, all of my teammates are so helpful and whenever anyone is having difficulties or they need help, everyone pitches to help one another. Organization hasn't always been my strongest skill but since having to use it so often in the lessons, I have learned to make sure I always have all the materials I need and I have gone over everything I need to say.
