Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact?
Each helped create more of a skillset in terms of editing. Each job leads to the next job, like they opened up doors for me to tutoring jobs. I think I spent the most time on the Paper Shell Review, that helped me with my literature skills, being organized, and assembling something tangible with a deadline.
