Being Associated Student Body President was not a glamorous job, but it was rewarding. One afternoon I knocked on Ms. Morrison’s office door in tears as I was sleep deprived and stressed out juggling presidential tasks, school work, and my social life. She gave me a piece of paper and told me to write down everything I was feeling and not worry about errors. “Just go at it,” she said. After I wrote it all down, she told me to take it home with me and read it the following day. She told me to come up with a plan of what to do next as sometimes in the moment of being flustered, I may make rash decisions. Today, I continue to use this method.
