I took the writing theory class with Dr. Amy Kessel during first semester of my Junior [year]. The engaged learning part of the course required me to volunteer at the LUC Writing Center. As a volunteer at the writing center, my main responsibility was to help students become better writers. I volunteered for 2 hours a week and had the opportunity to work with students with various writing skills. Through my experience, I have learned to be patient and also have been working on my interpersonal skills. Moreover, I believe that no matter what profession one pursues, everyone should be a decent writer. [...] Hence, along with my passion for medicine I am also passionate about helping others become good writers. I want to continue to work as a writing tutor at the writing center because in the process of helping others, I am also learning every day.
