2 Companies I really admire and Why

Apple is one of most admired company across the globe. I admire this company because of my involvement with this company's products for a long and having high level of comfortability an reliability within the company's products in general. I am very much able to relate and have personal experience in my everyday live while using such products. 

I admire this company because this company brings out  consumers, sellers and developers together from across the world. It makes business and consumer contents easier for both consumers and sellers. The options of consumer goods and opportunities for sellers in broad throughout this site.  

Let me tell you about ...

Setting the stage. Two years ago, I was volunteering at my college campus for an orientation event for incoming new students in the college. My role was to assist the students as they get in the and give them some paperworks and direct them to go which way for their campus tour. 

The beginning. The challenge that I was facing was concerning the role i played at the event. One of the tour leader weren't there at the event so there was short of a leader for a group of student to be toured around the campus. What was the challenge or situation you were facing?

The middle. At this point, I was asked to be a tour leader for that certain group of students who were missing their actual group leader. I thought about the current situation and I decided to lead the group of students for tour around the campus without any prior practice or expereince of being a team leader. What actions did you take? Why did you make those decisions? Be specific!

The End. However, I was able to the lead the team smoothly and take the team around the campus building and navigate them throughout the area. Some times it was getting a little overwhelmed, but I managed to tackle the situation as I knew the place well and was able to answer questions the students had. 

Reflection. From this particular event, I learned to take immediate actions for an current situation. In addition, I developed leadership skills while being a lead member for navigating a group of students.
