R.A. of the month for December
For the month of December one of the newer members of the Res. Life team has risen to the fore. This young lady, though she has a quieter aura, has shown dedication and diligence even throughout the winter break. Special thanks and congratulations go to Raynelle Brown, the RA of the Month for December 2012, who closed the year in fine style.
- Why did you want to become an RA?
I chose to be an RA because of my passion for helping and networking. I believe people are the most important element of an organization and without them an institution will not be the same; In this case there would be no institution. Furthermore, I enjoy being a part of a team that assists with the development and establishment of events on campus.
- What do you find most challenging?
I think the most challenging part of being an RA is adjusting your regular campus routines to accommodate the necessary duties an RA has to fulfill. However I believe that this challenge has allowed me to become more organized.
- How does it feel to be recognized for your efforts?
It feels great to know that your efforts has not gone unseen nor were in vain despite the fact that it was not something you were seeking to be recognized for and the res. life staff appreciate you.
- What is your major?
- How old are you?
- What are your career goals?
My main career goal is to be a successful and marketable individual within the hospitality and tourism industry. I intend to own a sports restaurant/ lounge and invest in my country’s (Trinidad and Tobago), hospitality and tourism industry.
- What advice do you have for current and future RA’s?
My advice future RA’s is to always be yourself in everything you do; remember you are a student just as your residents, listen, ask questions and respond genuinely. In addition remember that those in reslife are there ready and able to assist you with anything.
