Junior Editor in Chief

Junior Creative Writing Major

Being on Élan has opened my eyes to my own capabilities and interests. I feel capable now to take on large-scale responsibilities, after helping to put on department events or assemble the fall edition of Élan. Not only do I feel more able, however, to take on projects in the future, but I discovered an enjoyment for longer, bigger projects which require detailed planning and execution. It’s an exciting and interesting challenge, to problem solve lots of smaller issues, and see a big pay off at the end. This has shown me that after high school I want to pursue work which would allow me to create projects and design plans for making them happen, to work in a large team, and not just to be handed tasks.
