Life Leadership with Alex Urbina – May 27, 2013
Welcome to Life Leadership with Alex Urbina, right here on Santa Clarita’s Hometown Station, AM 1220 KHTS. This show is about creating lifelong learners and leaders with the skills to survive and thrive in the twenty first century. Today’s Show, we are talking about youth leadership at SCVi Charter School. We will also be talking about creating art and an upcoming art fair.
This is a unique opportunity for these young learners to present to the world their art and, and also a way to express themselves. I love the term entrepreneur, and this entrepreneur fair is such a good idea. When I was young, my parents just focused on getting a job at a company that had a pension. This is all about controlling their own future, their own destiny. In the world now, we want our children to be happy, and there are currently so many outside stresses. When we give them an opportunity to express themselves and they feel appreciated, it gives them a chance to grow more confident in what they do.
I believe that to be a great entrepreneur means that you need to have strong self leadership. You need to master things in yourself, such as keeping your word, being on time and so on. It is also about taking risks and getting outside of your comfort zone and SCVi is a place where they can break out of that comfort zone without being punished. Last week, we had an event at SCVi where we had a banner that read “life starts where your comfort zone ends”. We need to teach kids that if they want to grow, learn and develop, they need to learn confidence, and that all happens when you are uncomfortable.
