Nalini Selviah, being a community leader means not only thinking for today, or even tomorrow, but being able to make wise decisions that will still benefit the residents long after the current leadership team is gone.
Community leaders often work with volunteers. They may be elected by members of the community, assigned to work with a group, or they simply step forward and want to help. In any case, community leaders rarely have the luxury of choosing who they work with. As a community leader, your job is to balance everyone’s needs, as well as keep your sights focused on the work that needs to be done for the group to move forward. Even a leadership team cannot do it all. You will likely have to work with staff and volunteers to undertake big projects. Community leadership is part education, part inspiration, part motivation and part mobilization. Your passion for and dedication to the children and families of the Canadian and Sri Lankan Tamil community is immeasurable and certainly an example we strive to imitate every day. It is nearly impossible to think of a person who better exemplifies the entire Tamil community than you.
