Personal Statement Reflection

1.What did you learn from working on this assignment?

What I learned from working on this assignment is that I am on the right path for my career. I do need to do a few more internships or jobs that relate to my field of interest. I also learned that my current job is more relevant than I thought.

2.What did you take away?

I took away that it is good to have your goals set up so you know where you want to go, even if you aren’t sure exactly what you want to do. As long as you have an idea of what you want to do you can go a long way especially if you set goals. I as learned that internships help your chances of getting the job. A lot of it has to do with the fact that you are gaining experience.

3.What does this sample of your writing demonstrate about what you know about writing?

This sample of my writing demonstrates that I know how to restate the question in my answer. It also shows that I can properly cite websites and pull quotes from them and intergrade them into my writing. I could work on pulling more quotes but I have a solid start so far and as the semester goes on I’m sure I’ll get better at it.



My name is Rebbecca Galligan. I expect this eportfolio to represent how far I have came along as a reader and writer. I expect some great improvement in my writing from the time I am writing this to the end of the semester. I hope to improve upon my writing considerably and strengthen it. I would like this eportfolio to show how I am as a person. I would like people to get to know me through my writing and to see what I have to offer. I am full of personality and my writing tends to reflect that.
