My name is Heather Schmidt and I'm a junior at the Virginia Military Institute. I am always looking for a challenge and I am a strong, diligent, and meticulous worker with a good attitude and ethic. I am also an extrovert and enjoy interaction with different people – I work very well in teams. I have worked with many different tools and enjoy getting my hands dirty, especially when the end result is satisfying, like it was when I planted my first garden at home. I have a good knowledge of most tools and am a quick learner, and my attention to detail is high, which I have practiced extensively with my public relations staff at school. I also have a background in botany and microbiology and their respective labs. I am able to multi-task very well, especially because of my particular college, where I balance academics, strict training schedules, athletics, staff work (which includes running Open House events and delegating work to my subordinates,) event planning (I am in charge of a very big class event,) and various clubs and other extracurricular activities. I have also been on the Dean’s List for the majority of my college career thus far.
