The character trait that I identify with most is service, I have been giving my service to the Foothill Dragon Press since August of 2013. Through my service with the press I have learned many new skills that won't only help me during my future work with the press but also in life. It has taught me how to truly work as a team, each article takes a minimum of three people. You may be the writer of an article, but it doesn't end with you. Once you've written your article you have to send it to your editor, and from there it gets sent to another editor who gives it one last look, to make sure it's good enough to go on the site. It also needs art so either a photo, video, or drawing needs to be added, which means multimedia needs to be involved. If there is art, and it gone past two editors it can finally be uploaded on to the site. Another skill that I have improved on is communication, you need to communicate with everyone on the team so they know exactly what it is they need to do, to help you get your article up. If you don't tell multimedia that you need art for an article it will delay the whole process and make things harder for everyone. With all these people editing your article your writing begins to improve. You learn to go more in depth on things and how to make better word choices. Teamwork is a form of service and it helps you become better all around.
