The descriptive qualitative method was used in this study to explore and understand the student leader’s experiences during the new normal. The pieces of evidence gathered were conducted in February this year, from Banga National High School. The results of the study revealed the experiences of the student leaders which brought a huge impact and success on the study. The result of the study revealed that there are a lot of difficulties that student leaders are facing, such as disinterest and apathy, communication barriers, financial inadequacy, the inadequacy of budget for the organization, pandemic-related obstacles, hurdles in implementation and service delivery, a pile-load of tasks and parental prohibitions. That is why participants found ways to overcome such challenges by staying connected, maximizing alternatives, reaching out to others, looking into positivity, taking a breather, wearing another’s shoes, and following the courtesy call. As evidenced by the participants' comments, they all face challenges, but they also have coping mechanisms in place to overcome them. Struggles may appear to be a roadblock to achieving their goals, but they are not a reason to give up; rather, they are an invitation to fight even in the most difficult circumstances. This study will help the recipient to understand more and to have a clearer vision of this kind of situation as explored and studied by the researcher. Thus, Student Leadership has an impact on student’s perseverance, which is an important aspect of completing their leadership journey.
