You recently attended a leadership camp organized by your school. At the camp, one of your friends was chosen as the best group leader. You have been asked to write an article about your friend for your school magazine.
 
Reuben -- The Leader

Last month, a group of us from 5 Cemerlang attended a leadership camp in Kuantan. The camp was organized by our school. At the camp, we were divided into a few groups, and each group had its own group leader. Unknown to us until the end of the camp, an award for the Best Group Leader would be given. When the winner of the award was announced, none of the members of my group were surprised. We knew the winner would surely be Reuben, our group leader.

We were so sure that Reuben would win the award because he is born a leader. Reuben's full name is Reuben Raj and he is the eldest of five children. He turns 17 this year. During his primary school years, he studied in SMK Sungai Teguh. He comes from a humble background where his mother sells nasi lemak for a living. His father has passed on when he was still a baby.

As a child, Reuben grew up helping his mother care for his other four siblings while his mother works hard to earn a living for five of them. Through his difficult childhood, Reuben acquired a great sense of responsibility that has shaped him to be who he is today. He is well known among his friends to be a man of caliber and very responsible in all the tasks he is given. Through the years, the care that he has shown to his siblings also overflows to others. People often mention his name with a smile on their faces, remembering his genuine care and concern for the people around him. He always remembers to greet people and makes sure no one feels left out around him. During the camp, I remembered how Reuben cared for those who were sick although he was busy with his own tasks. His people skills proved handy during this time.

More than his outstanding character, he also possesses great debating skills. He is a natural and charismatic orator, so it was no surprise that he received the Best Speaker award during the camp debate competition. Besides that, he was also voted as the most cooperative camper at the camp. Every teacher and student just loved him as he would never say no to people who need a helping hand.

Most of all, Reuben is an exceptional leader that inspires others. This was perhaps the main reason he was given the award. The best kind of leader is a humble one. He leads by example. During the camp, whenever we go through an activity together, he often does it first and makes sure he tests the activity before we do it ourselves. If there is any trouble to go through, he goes through it first. Even during the obstacle course, he had a slight injury on his leg because he was the first to go and the obstacle course was faulty. He affirmed that he would not have wanted it any other way. He proved that he is a sacrificial leader. By this example alone, I believe that Reuben truly deserves the honor of being the Best Group Leader.

The award entitles Reuben a Certificate of Achievement and a cash prize of RM500. Reuben, we are so happy with your achievement and hope that you continue to inspire others in every way that you can.
