Please briefly elaborate on one of your extracurricular activities or work experiences that was particularly meaningful to you. (About 150 words)
I started the Current Events Club because my group of friends like to discuss current news and local, national, and international politics. Our discussions would usually become very intense and attract a diverse crowd of participants. After two years of these discussions, we noticed that people would express their interest in joining the discussion, but would not have enough knowledge on a topic to formulate and express their view. Once we realized this, a friend and I decided that it would be a great idea to turn our discussions into a club where we could inform people about current events that they are unfamiliar with. This club has successfully given me a way to teach people about important topics, while also providing an open forum for learning and an exchange of ideas. Further, as I have an interest in teaching, the formation of this club has provided me an avenue to practice teaching and confirm it as a future career plan.
