We are kicking off our first Leader Bear of the spring semester with Zoë Pixler! She is a junior photography major expecting to graduate in 2018. Her top 5 strengths include empathy, strategic, ideation, developer, and individualization. Zoë has completed SOAR Leader Training and spent her summer of 2015 greeting new students as they are transitioning to Missouri State. She is an asset to the New Student and Family Programs office where she works as a Family Assistant.
Among other things, Zoë has spent her time with Sigma Sigma Sigma serving as the Honor Council Resource and Goals Coordinator as well as the VP of New Member Education. On top of that, she was a recipient of the Girl Scout Gold Award in 2014.
When asked what about leadership programs has impacted her the most, her response included..
“I know many, including myself, who have come out of these programs more confident and equipped with the skills necessary to lead ethically. I am impacted by the plethora of Bears that are able to get the opportunity to better themselves as leaders and choosing to use those skills to better their communities around them.”
Her advice that she would give to younger students is..
“I highly advise younger students to take advantage of these and many other leadership opportunities that Missouri State has to offer. Leadership comes in all forms and sizes, which means everyone has potential when it comes to being a #LeaderBear”
Congrats Zoë! BEAR UP!
