Over the past year, the Foothill Dragon Press Pyramid for Success character trait I have bestdisplayed is resourcefulness. With articles such as “Colbie Calliat sings to save the hillsides” and “Special Report: Every Fifteen Minutes” I have excelled at finding and utilizing all the sources I possibly could.
Before the Every Fifteen Minutes event I went to several optional staff meetings and familiarized myself with exactly what we would be writing about. I then proceeded to make an impressive minute by minute schedule for each journalist and did quite a bit of research about each organization participating. This helped us greatly when we were rushing to write the article; we were able to quickly and efficiently find any and all information we could ever want.
I feel I excelled utilizing my resources in the article “Colbie Calliat sings to save the hillsides” when I once again, spent a lot of time preparing. Our interview with Calliat was declined because of my supposed “lack of interview questions”, but I stumped Calliat’s publicist when I was able to hand him a printed sheet of questions within seconds. The look on his face alone was enough to reward me for my preparation, but the fact that I was able to release quotes from famous performer Colbie Calliat was absofruitely fantastic.
