Reflecting on my career at the College of Wooster it is clear that my time at the college was instrumental in the development of key personal and professional skills I will build upon for years to come. Requirements for a liberal arts degree helped to hone my writing skills in a variety of fields for diverse audiences. I gained confidence in my own work through the Independent Study process and developed a love of learning. Each of these Wooster-taught skills comes to play in a big way in my post-college life. I currently serve as an AmeriCorps VISTA at a small urban non-profit in Cincinnati where I work as a grant writer and volunteer coordinator for a number of the organization’s outreach programs, including an after school tutoring program for disadvantaged students and a community free store and food pantry. Writing and research come directly into play in grant writing, and I credit my Wooster education with preparing me to learn this challenging new skill with enthusiasm. Working to increase the volunteer power at the organization, I find that I draw upon the indirect lessons I learned as a volunteer tutor in the Wooster community. The diversity of my experiences at the College of Wooster, including classroom, extracurricular and community service, gave me the skills I need to do the work I care about. After I complete my VISTA service, I hope to continue my education by attending law school.
