Port Louis, Mauritius—After attending an ILF Youth Mentor Training, Sandrine Pazot from Mauritius shared some of her leadership journey.
On Moral Vision
Some of the values that I have acquired and that I try to develop more and more are being consistent, being positive, and living in gratitude, perseverance, and integrity. The one value that I think is important for me to change and be the change. Because as a leader, we are meant to lift others up and to help them reach their best and find purpose in what they do.
Being a leader or just in general being yourself and staying true to your principles and values is challenging in today’s world. I have realized lately that everything in my life has an influence on me and how I see myself. So I have started to make changes in my life to help me stay true to the principles and values that I am trying to implement and keep in my life.
For me, after this training, I feel like my calling in life is to be present for others and to help others, to be a support to them in their life.
I have been challenging myself to really get out of my comfort zone and lately, I have been working on an essential skill that I think is very important which is self-confidence.
On Celebrative Leadership
I think this has been a very difficult part as I often see the negative parts first. So, I have been working on being more positive, to start seeing the good, and finding courage in the little victories that happen daily.
Sandrine continues to work with youth in Mauritius.
