  • What I have gained from my experience in the Student-at-Large Program, is not only having an active involvement within student government and the campus, but also with developing leadership skills through various workshops and training. In addition, for me the elements of the program contributed to my development through monthly one-on-ones, leadership workshops, working effectively as a team, and overall learning to become a student leader & having a voice. I have also build connections through BOD members and getting to interact with them in a unique way. And the specific skills I have gained and practiced through this experience and program is lobbying, advocating, leading, taking initiatives, giving and receiving feedback from my colleagues, and learning to have a voice for students and being open-minded. In addition, I also gained with how much hard work, time, and dedication goes on with being a part of this program; and I’m truly grateful for this program, allowing me to practice those skills.

    Legislative Affairs Intern, Spring 2017
  • I gained knowledge on how to effectively work with others, about myself, and daily interactions in the workplace through the SAL workshops. I learned how to prioritize myself and be aware of my self-care through one-on-one meetings with Mai-Thi (ASI Graduate Assistant), she always provided the best advice and really look out for what makes us feel better and perform better. Through hands-on experience, I became more well-knowledged of Illustrator and was able to incorporate a lot of ideas. This helped me develop excellent experience for my career goals in the future. Overall, this internship provided the best experience through hands-on activities, working in an office space, and having to collaborate with many other different individuals in order to effectively run a business.
