    I have been volunteering to do taxes for low-income people for a few years, before I developed an interest in finance. That work helped demonstrate my ability to work with numbers. The Earned Income Tax Credit is popular right now, and I have applied for some advocacy positions or city positions dealing with tax policy, so the volunteer work has been helpful.

    Serving on the WSA executive board has provided an invaluable learning opportunity with regard to understanding how high-functioning groups operate, how to be a leader and a follower, and how to translate student complaints into concrete suggestions for enhancing the Wagner program.

    Being Co-Chair of Wagner Environmental Policy & Action (WEPA) was really a great experience to work with other students, faculty and experts who were passionate about similar issues. I not only felt like my efforts were worthwhile in bringing important issues to light for students at Wagner, but also provided a great personal learning experience.

    Being a member of the UPSA board was an amazing opportunity to meet friends and network. I made more contacts by organizing events than by attending them.

    I worked with OCS to refine my resume and learn how to tailor it to each job I applied for. I realized that there were common threads between what seemed like loosely related activities I had done prior to Wagner, and with OCS' advice, I was able to weave them into a cohesive story.

    Through my internship, I was able to attend a conference which taught me a whole host of other issues related to domestic violence and during which I met various practitioners working with the issue on different levels, like social service delivery, legal issues, and activism.
