Project Description: "Is leadership innate or acquired? This question triggered four third year high school students, ages 14 – 15 to work on a topic about leadership. Leadership can be defined as one’s ability to get others to willingly follow. Every organization needs good leaders so that everything will be work well. Our project is about the characteristics of a certain leader, particularly a City Mayor in leading his society. We want to appreciate him by making this site that talks about his struggles to let his name be known because of his great leadership. We decided to choose this project to further acknowledge this leader who was very willing to be interviewed despite his hectic schedule. This site will tell how this leader worked very well and make his people feel safe. This site will define the true leader that everyone is looking for. . . somebody who leads but also listens to his constituents. In this project, we were task to produce a website that teaches about the skills, traits, and characteristics which make an individual a great world leader. Following to that, our group decided to interview Hon. Mauricio Domogan, the current Mayor of Baguio City, Philippines. He has been elected and occupied several positions in the City for 24 years from being a Councilor, a City Mayor, a Congressman and back to being a City Mayor. Aside from the interview, we had researched on the qualities of a good leader and compiled all the important details in this website. We hope that our website will serve as basis for those who are occupying government offices to be leaders in their own ways so that a better future will be achieved. Furthermore, we hope to inspire young and budding leaders to pursue their dreams in uniting people to work hand in hand. "
