I am currently a full time student at the University of Alabama. I am seeking a degree in English and news media. Most people choose their college degrees based solely on what they are good at, without really factoring in what they enjoy. I, however, did both: reading and writing are both things I enjoy very much and prove to be very proficient at. For these reasons, I think I would really enjoy working in the kind of environment this position fosters. Reading and writing are not only fundamental skills, but they are also a gift to possess. Through this position, I can share and facilitate that with others in my community by helping them achieve academic excellence.
