"The biggest reason I always do something is because of the fans. Under any circumstance, fans move me."
Kim Taeyeon; A Leader’s Heart.
The leader that she is…
There are several reasons to why Girls’ Generation became a success story. Friendship, is one. Talent, is another. However, there is one distinct reason to why this group could go on to their eighth year together without any discords or fights. That reason lies in their leader, Taeyeon. On paper, Taeyeon may not seem like the stereotypical leader. Leaders are usually quite forward, yet, our leader is one who follows her members. Ironic? Maybe. Is it a bad thing? No. Interestingly enough, to others, this may seem like a weakness. In reality, however, Taeyeon’s greatest strength as a leader is that she leads with a humble heart. One of her greatest traits is that she inspires and encourages her members to lead. She knows that there is a time when one leader is needed, and when the time is there, she confidently steps out in front. She understands her role in the group, and recognises that her members also has potential to blossom into leaders of their own. She is the kind of leader who retreats, and lets her members take the spotlight at any given situation. When a difficult situation arises, she steps forward to tackle it. That is a true leader. Knowing when to retreat, and when to step forward. Leadership is knowing that the group was never all about her, but ultimately, it’s about assisting her members into becoming the leaders that they were also born to be.
Even after seven years…
… I hope you continue to become the fuel that drives Girls’ Generation to reach an even higher peak. Young Taeyeon once stood on the side of the bridge and shouted to an empty audience that she could do it. She carried those dreams with her, and here we are… seven years later. Good on you, Taeyeon. You said you could do it, and you did just that. You said that you were thankful to SONEs for giving you the chance to love and be loved. Today, I’d like to give that gratitude back to you. For giving us the chance to love, and for loving us, thank you. Have the happiest birthday Taengoo! Here’s to another year of dorkiness and your ahjumma tendencies :)
Happy Birthday Kim Taeyeon!!!
