Nisha "Serve"

My name is Nisha.  I am one of the "quieter" Lightgliders.  I like to be behind the scenes doing whatever I can to help.  You may not notice me and that is exactly the way I like it!

I was born and raised in India.  Being the oldest of seven kids, I was given a lot of responsibility with my brothers and sisters.  They needed me to be consistent and caring.  Do you have siblings?  Having little brothers and sisters has taught me a lot about what it means to give without expecting much in return.

I came to Lightglider Academy a bit nervous.  There were so many big personalities and talented people here.  Bryce is courageous.  Tambika is administrative.  Marlon is a genius.  I didn't know what I had to offer.  One day Tova thanked me for always doing the little things that seem to go unnoticed.  She said that these were the things that helped others be more effective. Things like collecting boosts in my treehouse and giving them away to new Lightgliders.  I didn't think anything of this.  If we have boosts to give out, we should do it!

"Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant." Mark 10:43 (NLT)

I guess I am learning that even the little things can make a big difference. It brings me joy to serve. Putting the needs of others before my own helps me to be humble and encourage others all at the same time. Those who serve made the most impactful leaders!
