As youth we are often not taught to find our “voice” before we “speak” - school also doesn’t teach us that. Being a volunteer for The Gauntlet allows you share your perspectives both on the campus community but also on issues that matter to you including the random ideas that come to you on your commute or between study breaks. It is the training grounds for you to voice your opinion and serves as a lounge of dialogue as a outlet for those who hope to build leadership skills. But most of all it has taught me to become more introspective as an indoorsy introvert!

What I find most enjoyable in volunteering for The Gauntlet is being able to enhance my writing as well as publish information for the masses. I look forward to learning more from individuals that I have the privilege of interviewing and stories that I have the benefit of writing about. This is an awesome team for budding writers such as myself and I am grateful to be a part of it.

This is my first year volunteering with The Gauntlet and I've had a great experience! I really enjoyed the opportunity to engage with and inform the community as a news writer and look forward to having more of my work published. The opportunity to write whatever and whenever I wish is a great privilege that I deeply appreciate as a volunteer. I am also grateful to the editors surrounding me who have gone the extra mile in supporting me.

Through volunteering at The Gauntlet, I’m able to sharpen my writing skills & work within a student community that is just as passionate about current events as I am. No two stories are ever exactly alike, so writing for a newspaper really gives us the opportunity to be as creative as we want.

Volunteering for The Gauntlet is an amazing experience that allows me to cultivate my writing skills. Getting the chance to connect with people through my articles is rewarding and motivates me to write on various topics. Over the past year, I have learnt a lot of new things and have met wonderful people along the way. I hope to continue my writing journey with The Gauntlet and reach more people with my writing.
