The beginning of this new semester marks my third semester at Flash Communications. I was a member of Flash Communications in the spring, summer, and now I am the assistant coordinator to Luke Armour.

At Flash Communications, students learn how to better communicate with professionals and improve their writing skills. As assistant coordinator, I help students with any questions they may have and work to improve my own writing skills, as well.

In the spring semester, I was asked to hold the position of assistant coordinator in the fall. I was more than honored and immediately accepted the position. I decided to take a position to work at Flash Communications in the summer, as well, to improve my skills and knowledge for the upcoming semester.

As assistant coordinator at Flash Communications, I will learn to be even more of a leader. I will learn to assist colleagues with assignments and projects and to delegate responsibilities.

I believe the assistant position is a better experience. It is teaching me many things I would not have learned without this position. As assistant coordinator, you hold different responsibilities, including events distribution. This job is giving me the courage to step up and ask for help, it is giving me confidence in my work and has taught me teach others.

The first day at Flash was intimidating, and I was extremely nervous. I walked into a room of students who had previously worked together, and I only recognized a couple faces. However, the intimidation and nerves quickly diminished. Flash is a wonderful place to work. It is a great atmosphere, as well as educational and informative.
