Sydney Turner

Sydney Turner | Sophomore | Psychology | Psychology Club |
Vice President

What led you to become and officer for your org? I started attending Psychology Club meetings as a freshman and decided I wanted to step outside of my comfort zone and try and go for a leadership position. I was then elected Vice-President in Spring 2018 and decided to run again in Fall 2018.

What have you learned about leadership in your experience as an org officer? I've learned the importance of working as a team. Our executive board would not run as well as it does without everyone chipping in with ideas and offering assistance when needed. Running meetings and holding events is not always a one person job and I've learned a lot when it comes to coordinating and organizing as a group.

How have you personally benefited from your experience as an org leader? I've learned quite a bit about myself as a leader. I used to think I wasn't outgoing enough to stand in front of a group and speak but now I know it's something I can do and I take pride in that. I've grown and have come out of my shell quite a lot since my high school days.

Do you have any tips or advice for future org officers? If you're on the fence about running for a leadership position, go for it. Getting involved throughout college has helped me grow as a person and what I've learned throughout the experience are things that I can take with me throughout life and my future career.
