Leadership lived: Regina Bolin


I am Regina Bolin and I’m a business
administration major and I’m a senior. Today we’re at the Old State Capitol and
students from colleges all over Illinois are getting the student laureate award
from the Lincoln Academy of Illinois and it recognizes their hard work and
achievements that they have gone through through their four years of school.
Governor Rauner was here it was really cool to meet him I get to shake his hand
and he was the one that gave us our medallions. It’s really cool to be here
and be able to get this award just because there are so many people that
could have gotten it at the University of Illinois Springfield and I just feel
so honored that some of my achievements have been recognized and it’s really
awesome. At UIS, I am involved in the Alternative Spring Break group I am also
I used to be on the women’s soccer team and I’m a part of the business
fraternity on campus. I played all four years on the soccer team and it was a
great experience. I loved everyone that I got to play with and I’m just being able
to have a role on the team and being able to continue playing the sport that
I love was awesome. I’ve been a part of the Alternative
Spring Break group for the past three years and last year and this year I’ve
had executive roles in it, so I’ve helped plan the trips. I definitely did not
expect to be here. I didn’t know exactly what the award was before I got it but
after reading about it and seeing the past winners it’s really cool to be here
and I never thought I would be just because it’s such a prestigious thing to
win. My experience at UIS has been a really good one so far I’ve met a lot of
great people and I’ve been able to learn a lot while I’ve been there too there’s
just a lot of opportunities at UIS that I’ve been glad to be a part
of and I think the school has been a really good fit for me. Leadership is what you make
of it there’s always opportunities to be a leader and I think anyone could be a
leader just and it just depends on how much effort
you put into but it’s people think it’s a lot of responsibility and hard work
and it usually it is but it’s also can come naturally and there’s different
ways to be a leader as well and you don’t always have to be the loudest one
in the room.
