Leading with Humility and Growth

My Team and I celebrating one year of achievement.

Project Digital, an initiative I founded, has been a humbling journey of learning and growth. Leading this diverse team of 14 students, from freshmen to final year, has challenged my perspective on leadership and revealed its true essence: service.

It's not about me, it's about empowering others. Leadership is a privilege, not a position. It's about recognizing that everyone matters, especially those who need support the most. Leading from behind means uplifting the weakest link, celebrating the strongest, and ensuring everyone feels valued and heard.

This realization has ignited a fire within me to become a better leader. I understand that my success is directly tied to the success of my team. That's why I've joined the Aspire Leadership Program – to equip myself with the skills and knowledge to truly serve my team.

My vision extends beyond leading. I want to inspire, to ignite a spark of growth in everyone I encounter. I want my team members to leave Project Digital stronger, more confident, and equipped with the skills to navigate the digital world.

But I know I can't do it alone. To truly understand and support each team member, I need to build strong, personal relationships. This requires empathy, active listening, and a willingness to invest time and effort. By understanding their strengths and weaknesses, we can work together to overcome challenges and grow as a unit.


Leadership is humbling. It's a constant cycle of learning, unlearning, and adapting. It's about acknowledging that there's always more to know, and being open to guidance from others. By embracing this continuous learning process, I can lead with authenticity, humility, and a genuine desire to see my team, and Project Digital, thrive.
