Exhibiting these traits will inspire confidence in your leadership. Not exhibiting these traits or exhibiting the opposite of these traits will decrease your leadership influence with those around you. It is important to exhibit, model and display these traits. Simply possessing each trait is not enough; you have to display it in a way that people notice.
Colombia Born in Colombia, Andrea moved to the United States at the age of five with her mother and sister. The family eventually settled in Stamford, CT. One of the most important things to her family was education and so her mother made sure that no matter what challenges they faced, school came first.
It was a tough adjustment for Andrea and her family, who were the only Hispanic and immigrant family in the neighborhood. Andrea struggled to find where she fit in until things started to look up for her in high school.
It was the first time I realized I needed to become independent. I needed to stand on my own two feet and be strong for my mom. I needed to make sure that my life was together because she had a lot going on. So high school was great, but it was also challenging.
She says she was very inquisitive from an early age. Andrea attended the University of Connecticut UCONN but struggled at times balancing academics and work, as she worked jobs to help defray some of her college expenses.
Going away to school was a choice Andrea made intentionally, but it is not always common in her culture for kids to leave home so early. Although it was an adjustment, it was well worth it. Like a lot of things throughout my life, I felt like I needed to do something to help me to grow and become an independent person.
So I choose to go away to school. As a graduate student, Andrea studied community counseling which is now the clinical mental health counseling program.
Again, her choice to further her education meant balancing work and academics as she worked full-time as a legal assistant 3 out of the 4 years she was in graduate school. Her time in graduate school only furthered her passion for helping others and it also provided an opportunity for a lot of introspection.
I was always so grateful for the people at school who really believed in me and encouraged me to reach my full potential. It was through that experience, and through a practicum at UCONN in Stamford, that she found she preferred to work with young adults.
Her clinical background working with young adults helps with her current work working with students who are at risk academically that have similar experiences to her own. I love being able to model to students that you can overcome barriers if your work hard, if you use resources, if you advocate for yourself.
She has a lot of empathy for the students she works with knowing herself what it feel like to navigate through college with little to no help. She says it took a long time for her to receive her citizenship.
She and her family found it hard to navigate the legal system and obtain the right documents to do so. Her solution — seek help. We need to come together. We need to support those people in our community who may not have the courage to have a voice. I love that each of us brings a different perspective.

7 Skills for Supervision Success Jan 12, by Elisa Somehow I’ve managed to generate a mini-series of “7 Things” posts on this blog – mostly complaining about people – so it only seems right to continue it; this time on a more positive note.
What makes a good Supervisor? Supervisors have three quite distinct roles: 1.
