In the beginning of this unprecedented time, I often found myself unmotivated and worried about what would happen next. Being in quarantine has allowed me to take time to reflect and recognize the things that are most important to me. I began to shift my mindset and do more activities that made me happy. This has been a difficult situation for many of us, but what keeps me going, are the very things that inspire me daily. I would be remiss without giving credit to the strong support system that continues to encourage me, as well as my faith. The phrase, “It takes a village” is just a quick glimpse of what that inspiration means to me. Working at NSU Writing and Communication Center (WCC) has also inspired me and provided me with a sense of security considering the unknown journey we are facing. We transitioned our writing center fully online almost seamlessly, in only a few days. Moving from our already strong in-person community, to cultivating an environment that is supportive and encouraging during these troubling times, has made me value working at the WCC even more. The collaborative work we do as graduate assistant coordinators would not be possible without out executive director, faculty coordinators, administrative assistant, and each our amazing consultants, who work so diligently to support the student body. Each day I am grateful to have the opportunity to continue to work and be a part of such a great team, that continues to be an inspiration.
