Being one piece of a forty person puzzle has taught me more than any other form of involvement could at the University of Florida. As a 2013 Preview Staffer, I learned how to understand my strengths and abilities in ways that I never imagined I would. Through this position, I tried to treat every person like they knew nothing about UF. I was their first impression and I wanted them to look back at a positive experience. I learned how rely on others and not take on all responsibilities on my own, because I knew I had thirty-nine people who had my back.
I applied to be on Preview Staff twice. The first time, I don’t think I was quite ready for what was to come. I decided to apply a second time because I wanted to see if I had what it took to help welcome the incoming class of my peers. Throughout the process the second time, I acted like myself and felt confident that if I were to get the position, it was meant to be. Don’t let how others act through the process change your attitude, the directors of NSFP look for honesty and integrity. So, just be true to yourself throughout your interviews so they can really see you.
