I have been in the Writing Center since it started last year. I had no idea what I was signing up for when I did, but I do know that I am happy with myself that I did. Through the Writing Center, I have been able to become so much more involved in my school community, meet and build bonds with people I never thought I would, and interact with the world outside of Lindblom. Being in the Writing Center has made me want to be a part of my school's community.
We've done a lot of things in the Writing Center that requires us to interact with people. We have had to sell tickets to our events, get the word out about the Writing Center, and promote the different events that we host. I will never forget waking up super early to arrive at school earlier than usual to make final touches to our haunted house, or when the Writing Center's monthly contest is hosting a party for that month, and, just for being a tutor, I am invited to chow down on pizza and sweet treats.
I will always remember my time here in the Writing Center. The best part of being in the Writing Center was the feeling of accomplishment when you actually helped a tutee. So far in my life, nothing has been more satisfying than helping the people around me who genuinely appreciate it.
