I promised myself that I would post this before kickoff so here it goes.
Never in a million years did I think that I was going to win the Dean’s List Award last year. It turned out to be the experience of a lifetime! Going into Championship, I had convinced myself that I wasn’t going to win, so as to not be disappointed. After all, I am from a small town and a mediocre team, and I thought that others had more opportunities to make a difference than I did. You can therefore imagine how surprised I was at Championship! With that I have just two things to say:
Mentors: Please, nominate your students for the Dean’s List Award! Being a Finalist is a huge honor and you never know how the award can change someone’s life! The interview is also a great learning opportunity, as for most students, this is their first interview.
Students: If you are nominated by your team, or even just curious and have any questions, do not hesitate to ask me and/or post below! I would love to help. My main advice for the interview is to show a passion towards FIRST (since that is the question I get asked most often).
