As I matured through my college years, I began to feel a larger need to take part in my community. I began to recognized that there is more to college than grades and athletics-something that for me had not been true of high school. I endured a long learning curve as a freshman and sophomore, and as a junior finally began to find my niche in the larger Mount community. I attribute these experiences with helping me to develop my time management and people skills in a low-risk setting, as well as providing me with the opportunity to meet and learn to interact with different personality types effectively. They also allowed me to branch out and work in areas that I could have never had otherwise.
