My name is Jennifer Lynn Dinell, and for the past two years, I have been a member of Purdue University Calumet's chapter of the National Society of Leadership and Success. In my first and second year of membership, I have maintained the position of Vice President of Operations.
I was asked to join the NSLS by the NSLS president. At the time I was asked, I was involved in only one other student organization and I felt that I had the time to put into another organization. Honestly speaking, I joined the NSLS at first only so that I could place the title on my resume. As I got more involved with the NSLS, however, I found myself craving the motivation I received from the NSLS's presenters as well as my fellow members. I was addicted to the motivation I felt after attending a NSLS meeting. To this day, I cannot wait until our next meeting.
This motivation I was receiving from the NSLS gave me the ability to do things that I never thought that I could do. Within the course of a year, I joined five other organizations on campus as well as maintained a 3.83 GPA. I believe that I would never have been able to do what I have done or what I am presently doing without the feedback from the NSLS presenters and my networking group. It is because of the NSLS that I have helped our school pursue its strategic plan, because of the goals that I have set for myself and for my organizations.
