I know its been over a week since I last posted. I’m getting back into midterm mode, so hang in there with me!
I officially turned in my RA application for next year! Friday is my interview and I cannot wait to get that over with. I know that I will do well and I am looking forward to getting the position!
Here are a few reasons as to why I want to be an RA:
- I love bringing people up. Everyone should be able to enjoy success regardless of status, race, major, etc.
- When it comes resources, they should be shared. In that sense, I believe that its about who you know and what you know. I made it my job to know a lot of things and a lot of people. If I don’t know, I know someone who does.
- One of the many things I was taught growing up is that being a leader means sharing knowledge. This ties back into the other two. I cannot sit back and have others struggle when I am or have the resources to help them.
- I just think it would be fun and I already have a friend who wants to be my co-RA!
Some people do apply to be an RA for the room and board, but in my case, I don’t need that. With my scholarship, I get a decent refund so I don’t have to worry about room and board. For me, the RA position would be a great experience and definitely get me out of my comfort zone a bit more!
