There's a special beauty to helping someone with their writing, I think, because writing -- more than almost any other activity -- is connected with a person's thought process. Helping someone to organize their essay for a class doesn't just rearrange words on a page; it rearranges concepts in their minds, makes connections between ideas stronger, helps them to better understand the justifications of their beliefs and the beliefs of others. Working at the CEW has let me watch dozens of students grow in their understanding of a wide variety of topics, from film theory to the 2016 election to sociology and everything in between, and I look forward to working with more students on other subjects still, and I look forward to seeing more moments of growth and realization.
