I’ve decided to compile a list of frequently asked questions (or FAQ if you will) so that you can refer to them any time you feel like you don’t know enough about me as a blogger and a content creator.
Feel free to send these to any friends or colleagues that might be reluctant towards following anonymous bloggers – I’m nowhere near that secretive.
Who are you?
My name is Stacy, I’m 25 years old and I come from a small town in Yonkers. I’ve decided to follow my dreams of living and studying in a big city and the choice came down to New York City (shocker, I know).
What do you study?
I study human resources management with an emphasis on group psychology and social sciences. Columbia University has made it possible for me to specialize in that respect since I became a school monitor only a year ago.
Why are you a school monitor?
Being able to practice the skills and knowledge I read about only days or weeks ago is a great experience. The freshmen are rarely knowledgeable enough to see through my disguise of a scared introvert in big girl’s shoes. It works great for me and the professors are happy with my performance.
Do you like group management?
Absolutely! I love being able to monitor and steer a group in the right direction should they lose focus or have detractors present.
Not everyone is equally focused or interested during a lecture or a test. Being the person in charge of keeping everyone in line is a great professional opportunity for me so I wouldn’t change it for the world!
Why blog about your volunteering?
Blogging is an untapped treasure-trove of interesting people, ideas, and trends. People that blog is often doing so because they have something to share with the world.
I consider group management and college survival tip an essential part of what makes today’s youth tick. I would have loved to have a senior blog about my college and what awaits me during the four-plus years that I will spend in the classroom.
Do you have any other hobbies?
I like writing poetry and prose, as well as reading fiction and non-fiction books. I rarely go out to concerts or social gatherings (obviously) but I make it a habit to spend relaxing afternoons in hidden New York coffee shops and bookstores. Reading is a habit of mine that I hold dear and intend to use for the purposes of writing quality content on this blog for you guys.
Anything else you want to share with us?
Keep your eyes peeled on the articles page since I will do my best to write at least one compelling piece each week.
While it all depends on my college obligations and homework, I will try to follow up on every comment you guys leave behind. Don’t be afraid of asking me for tips and tricks in regards to group management and college in general – I will always be happy to respond to fellow colleagues, students, and bookworms.
