Volunteer

Habitat for Humanity Restore

I volunteered at the Habitat for Humanity Restore in Oxnard for my "Be the Change" Sophomore community service project. Work at the Restore involved organizing building supplies, helping people move heavy objects, and doing other physical labor. I went with friends, and it provided us with a great team-bonding experience.

Character

One trait on the chart that reflects me is cooperation. I have worked with colleagues on several articles over the course of the year. I feel that journalists working together produce better work than working alone. One of the articles was on the St. Baldrick's fundraiser. I worked with Megan and we got the interviews and wrote the article in a much shorter time period than we would have been able to manage alone. The class elections was another article that I contributed to. There was a total of 10 candidates and it took myself and three other people to get the article up within a day or two. Cooperation is an essential trait for writers, because working together will almost always produce a better, faster product than working alone.

Initiatives

One of the biggest examples of initiative I have taken this year is switching from News to A&E. Writing for News was getting to the point where it was stressful and was getting to the point where I just wasn't being productive. So I switched out and started writing app reviews. I designed a review format, and did my best. This was a good experience because it helped lay the foundation for becoming resorceful and working on my own.

Another time I have taken initiative was in the very beginning of the year. The very first news article I wrote, "Kindergaten" Renaissance Rally brings back old memories, took initiative on my part to write. I had to approach people and get an interview, when I had never done anything of the sort before. It took a big jump in my confidence to be able to do that, and it has made me more assertive in my interactions with strangers.
