“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” -Harriet Tubman
Hi! I am Mikhail Wee from Changkat Changi Secondary School. I am currently serving as an Associate Member (AM) as I have the passion to nurture my juniors to become better leaders. I also wanted to be more exposed to leadership experiences in the NCC and be closer to my friends and Teacher Officers. The quote above reminds me that with passion and hard work I will be rewarded fairly.
I feel proud when I see my juniors become the person they want to be, one who is confident and who takes on good leadership qualities. This tells me that I have done my job successfully. Grooming a cadet is not an easy feat, there are challenges to consider such as their family background, commitments and certain habits that they possess. Hence, it is important to remember that time and patience is essential before you can help your juniors bloom.
By continuing to serve with my school unit, I get to use my skillsets in guiding my juniors on how to run unit trainings and organise logistical requirements for our Annual Unit Camp. I feel that it is important for a senior to provide such guidance to help them see that by being organised things can run smoothly.
