Mikayla Spitse on the Special Project

Name: Mikayla
Age: 20
Occupation: Market research interviewer
Favourite Pro Writing Class: Creative writing seminar

What has working on this magazine taught you?
Communication skills within a group for sure. You constantly need to be communicating with one another about progress and to check that everyone's on track. If one person falls behind, you all do.

What were you most excited about?
I was excited for the design element of it. Putting things together, choosing fonts and colours, etc.

What do you wish you had more time for? 
More time to work on the cover. I understand why it took kind of a backseat for the majority of the project but I would have loved more time to create our original idea.

What advice do you have for future students doing placement on campus? 
Don't accept it just because you think it's going to be easier than going out for placement, because while you spend less time having to be at one specific location, it still is incredibly time consuming.
