I chose to do the Minor in Writing because the skill of competent writing is beneficial in every capacity. After graduation I will be a college adviser at Ottawa Hills High School through the Michigan College Advising Corps (MCAC). The skill of being able to write effectively is necessary in basic everyday life. This minor will always help me when I am writing my essays for graduate school and in my future as a potential journalist, if I choose to go this route for graduate school. This MiW has also helped me create a platform to showcase the research that I have accomplished about my family and genealogy. I greatly appreciate the opportunities that the minor in writing has given me go grow and create in ways that other writing programs wouldn’t have given me.
