Personal Narrative: An Interview With The Freshman Class Council

Good Essays
For my community builder I decided that I wanted to interview someone from Freshman Class Council. This is when I reached out to the president, Darren Johnson Jr. to set up an interview. The reason I wanted to interview him and the Freshman Class Council in general was, that they do so much for the freshman class and that impressed me from the day I got on campus. Through my interview I found out a lot of information about what Freshman Class Council is and what they do. On September, 27 I got to sit down with Darren. He was elected to be the Freshman Class Council president for this year. As we sat down we started talking about Freshman Class Council as a whole and what type of people are involved. This brought up on of my first questions, which was who is your advisor. Every great club has a strong advisor to over look procedures, so I wanted to know the person behind the scenes making sure everything went as planed. Darren explained to me that Dr. Kelly from the chemistry department was the advisor. Throughout my interview Darren would talk about his past involvement with student bodies at his high school. This is when I questions if all the officers have had past experiences in study body or if this is something new for some them. Darren didn’t have a straight answer, simply, because he did not …show more content…
I went on to the interview not knowing anything about Freshman Class Council, but by the end I felt like I was right next to Darren in the council. I learned everything about what the club is, what they do, and their budget for everything they do. It was interesting to know that they do so much for the student body especially during finals week. I can tell from my interview with Darren that Freshman Class Council is a very professional and organized club, that is really devoted to help out not only the freshman class, but for the entire campus and make it a better

    Personally, I was given the lead role as group leader. This meant I had to be in constant contact with the owner and different workers of a company we were working for. Being fair, I had already had the chance to develop my professional communication skills during my Junior year internship at a local La Jolla company. However, communicating with real world professionals is one of the most daunting tasks you can do as a young person, especially in high school. I remember that we would draft emails, only to have them be revised by our teacher, John Bosselman.…

    I was rudely awakened when I first got here though. To help people not be like me my group and I made a presentation on tips for college freshmen. This presentation included talking about money management, getting involved, taking care of yourself, study habits, and getting to know your campus. When my group members and I met we focused on the first chapter of the UNI textbook. We talked and agreed upon the most important things that every college freshman should know.…

    In this role, I learned how to organize large-scale events, find and invite big-name speakers to our school, write scripts, and get an impactful message across to all students. While these were very difficult tasks, I excelled at and enjoyed my position greatly. Individually, we were in charge of hosting one assembly per year. The assembly I hosted was about safe driving, so I invited our city police chief to come speak at the assembly. I gained experience contacting his officer and communicating with him prior and during the…

    The best part that I really enjoyed about the freshman seminar class is that it makes me realize and understand what life is really going to be like when I’m first starting finish school/college, when I live the “adult” life, pursuing my career, and withholding many responsibilities. As a freshman, I was first clueless to the things I needed to know. Such as how to keep my grades up, the things I needed to know about the things expected out of me, and what will the next few years at RVEC hold for me. But indeed, the freshman seminar helped me with those things I was concerned about and what I actually wouldn’t have thought about, or something that I felt like was not important to know. The first thing I learned in the class was time management.…

    Recently, we have not had as many applicants as in the previous year applying to the class. This is a problem that can be addresses by making the SCU EMS organization more visible on campus. I propose that we communicate with orientation leaders in order to include us as one of the important resources on campus that they teach about. By having us present at all of the sessions we will be able to reach all the incoming students and slowly the negative stigma associated with us will fade over time. During fall quarter we can present to freshman in their CTW, C&I and LEAD classes explaining about our organization and encouraging them to look into our organization and apply for the class.…

    Although I carried doubt and fear of running for such a respected role, I knew that to overcome my timidness, I had to take a stand and prove to myself that I could do what I never thought I could do. With motivation from club members and the club advisor, I ran for the position and took office as secretary of the Tempe High Key Club. In becoming an integral officer to the club, I acquired many speaking roles by supporting the club meetings and taking notes of other members ideas throughout the remainder of my freshman year. I attended my first Key Club District Convention in Albuquerque where I made numerous connections with students from other states and further enhanced my ability to present myself. In addition to meeting students at the convention, I met the International Trustee who had an extremely social and extroverted personality.…

    During a news broadcast I am able to talk about all of the events going on on campus, as well as stories that I may propose to the club’s leading professor to approve. Although the stories that I cover are not hard hitting nor am I viewed by many, just local broadcast watchers, being a part of ECTV is a wonderful learning and practicing opportunity for becoming a better aspiring news anchor. The club meets about once a week, twice if there is a lot happening that week. I have been a member of the club since my freshman…

    The next club I joined was FCCLA which stands for Family Career Community Leaders of America, this is the club that shows you leadership. It has taught me so much about how to stand in front of a crowd and not be scared, it has also taught me a lot about myself and how great my weakness is in leadership. Then there cam W-Club, this is a club to keep high school students out of drugs and alcohol. We made an oath that stated we could not participate in parties that included these substances. Therefore it was a great club to join and I am so happy I did, because we also get to go to elementary schools and teach them that participating in that stuff is not good.…

    I am currently the advisor of the Towson University Society of accountancy (TUSA), which typically is intended to introduce what accounting as a career would look like for freshmen student or students who are not aware of what account career could be like, however, TUSA outgrew its role and is functioning just like other nationally recognized professional accounting associations like Beta Alpha Psi. In this student association, I work hand in hand with student officers running the student organization to provide all members with skills like making professional resume, networking and social business skills, and initiating a connection between students and professional organizations for the purpose of internships and hopefully a full time job opportunity after…

    John’s University is known for its rigor. When the university offered me to be a part of Honors pharmacy program, I accepted it because I wanted to academically challenge myself. In the Science Symposium held in high school, I presented my research on “Chemistry of Pain medicines” to the Advanced Placement Chemistry and Biology students and teachers. I also believe that overall development is very important for a student’s progress. During the fall semester, I was appointed as a Social Media chairperson for Circle K International (community service club) and was the youngest student to be appointed as a pre- professional Liaison for Student College of Clinical Pharmacy.…
