As a Community Assistant at UTM Residence, I was responsible for leading a team of student staff for the academic year. The summer term of 2019 was a time for us to get to know one another, as we meet for the first time.
As a leader guiding other leaders, I believe that it is vital to begin with a foundation by establishing our identity. Who are we as a team? What are our values? What is important to us and how do we achieve the goals that we set? By building a strong foundation, only then we would be able to build upwards.
My team and I went through multiple iterations, and we all agreed upon having Simba the Lion (Disney) and Sid the Sloth as our mascots.
