My role and what I learned

Organizer, Volunteer Coordinator, Co-Photographer

I worked as an organizer and co-photographer. This was my first time running a massive, multiday event, and so my first challenge was learning how to delegate tasks to other people so that I didn't spread myself thin.

Event Coordinator

While improving the effiecency of the set up, organization, and take down of the events, I was always concentrated on being an energetic, kind, and welcoming host for students. Whether it be a regular or a student's first visit, I strived to make each night more exciting than the last.

My role and what I learned

Video Editor

I was one of the video editors of the project, and also contributed to the final written report. Coming in with more experience in video editing than my partners, I was primarily responsible with teaching them how to perform tasks with the camera.
