How leadership or initiative has been demonstrated. Have you...
Been founder, president or the "first" of something important?

Served as captain of an athletic team, been a member of a championship team, or individual champion?

Progressed from regular member status to a leadership position through the course of years?

Changed the nature of an organization or made it better/more effective?
Gone beyond the norm in terms of contribution to the group, team or project?

Specific qualities colleges look for:
