What does TRAC mean to you?

I am very excited to be a part of the TRAC experience because of the new dynamic it will add to my time at Lehigh.   My first two years of college were very much focused on objective learning within engineering and business, but now I am ready to return to my old love of writing and creative thinking through everything the TRAC program offers.  My other involvements on campus already signify that I love helping others and making an impact on the student body, so being a TRAC fellow will allow me to continue to give back to Lehigh in a new and innovative way.  Neither creative nor analytical writing are meant to be completely solo activities, so being a TRAC fellow will help not only the other students who are trying to increase the quality of their writing, but will help me in my own journey through writing as well.
