Some example of initiative I took this year came form my article “Talent flourishes at Artwalk”. This article is by far my favorite and am very proud of it. One specific example was when I interviewed a local photographer Andrew Uvari. I was still not very comfortable interviewing people, but as the interview went on I found out that he is a Foothill alumni, I got really excited and started asking questions about how he got started and how Foothill had effected his work, I had found my angle. The next day I went to school, with my notepad in had, and asked art teacher, Mr. Frazier, about Andrew and how he felt about Uvari work in the Artwalk.
I feel this article is my best example of initiative because it was the only event I did that took up most of my day. I was there for hours on end, and it was a little tedious walking for store to store and getting pictures of the art and artists. At least six or seven people were interviewed and I got a dozen business cards. My feet ached from al of the walking and my notepad was crammed with notes. When it was time to actually write the article it was so chaotic, but despite the random notes and business cards, I wrote an article that I am still very proud of and accurately described the event.
