What I liked
The vocabulary used at City Year was self-aware, demonstrating qualities of positivity and growth. It wasn't weaknesses it was "grows," it wasn't things you were good at it was "strengths." These words produced a powerful team that I worked with to bring that same positive attitude to students in the inner-cities. The relationships that I had with them were genuine, and as I taught them about life, goals, etc., they taught me to be patient and understanding. Also, City Year gave me opportunities to take on leadership roles. I was the media coordinator for my school, which gave me the responsibilities and creative freedom to created newsletters.
