All About Me

Welcome new comers to my blog called Leadership101. My name is Holly and this is the third blog in which I write. My most in depth one is at It talks all about my goals and achieving them throughout my lifetime. So who am I? I am a high school student heavily involved in activities both within my school and outside of school. I am on a ski team, I do art club, debate club, Yearbook club, Junior Achievement (in which I am president), Peace and Justice club (in which I am part of the executive), Interact club (in which I am the secretary), and Guiding provincially and within my town. Along with all that I aim for high marks and good grades as well do some hobbies some of which include hiking, kayaking and sewing. In the future I aim to be an archaeologist travelling the world to help out with digs. And if all that isn't enough I LOVE VOLUNTEERING!!!

I can't really remember how it started, but for as long as I have known I have loved to help others and have had fun doing it. It's just who I am. Throughout my city I do all sorts of volunteering, whether it's cleaning up around the park or just emptying the recycling bins at school. There is nothing like volunteering in my life. At this moment you are probably sitting at your desk wondering how on earth volunteering could mean so much to me. Well it's simple, I enjoy it more than anything else I do in my life and I feel as if my life would be incomplete without volunteering. As I said above, it's just who I am. Pretty much all of my volunteering in some way links back to my core group of activities. For example I teach Jackrabbits how to ski at the Avalon Nordic Ski Club, which links back to being on my ski team. Thankfully I will not be writing all my volunteering out as that would at least go on for a page, but you get the idea from skiing.

I am a loving, caring person who sometimes cares what other people think. I believe that hard work and determination are the keys to success. I admit I am an excellent procrastinator, but that is something I have been working on and hopefully will stop eventually. We have one life so we must live it to it's fullest is how I live my life. Finally, I will leave you with a quote that represent me to the utmost degree.

"You don't just give up. You don't just let things happen. You make a stand. You say no. You have the guts to do what's right when everyone else just runs away."

This is me!

  1. Hi Holly,

    Great post! It’s amazing how you are involved in such a broad range of activities, and at such a high level. It’s also great that you are able to maintain your high marks even with all your extra-curricular involvement and volunteering.

    It’s very admirable that you are able to evaluate your strengths and your weaknesses as well. We all have something we can work on and recognizing that helps us fully achieve our goals.

    I love the quote, looking forward to reading the rest of your posts. Keep up the awesome work. :)
