1. I took the initiative to both write and photograph my articles all year (as exemplified to the right hand column), when no other multimedia member or writer could attend these events. This meant very little time for preparation and attendance, but I took them all with a firm handle and accomplished the job.
2. I took the initiative to volunteer for the articles that were on the difficult side. Diving head first into the writing world, I daringly took up the position of covering Back to School Night, which took place within the first few weeks of school. Besides my significant lack of experience I took the job and churned up the article.
