What does TRAC mean to you?

Ever since I was young, writing has been a huge part of my life. My family has always encouraged me to improve my writing and stressed its importance to my education and, in the future, to my professional life as well. As an international relations and spanish dual major with a history and business minor, I do a lot of different writing in the course of a semester. This diversity has increased my appreciation for the value of writing, and I think that writing should be a vital part of every student's life. TRAC offers me the opportunity to help to increase appreciation for writing and better fellow students' writing through peer interaction. I value the opportunity to help my peers improve their own skills in writing, and at the same time, improve my own writing as well.
