Staff Q&A: When was a time you led a team?

By the Amazing Kids! Staff


Want to know a little more about the Youth Staff at Amazing Kids! Magazine? Check out our Q&A with some of the staff members; their responses to the question of the month are below!

Ashley Lin, Assistant Editor, Adult Spotlight Interviewer, and Poetry Editor: In this past year, I have had the opportunity to serve as Founder & CEO of a startup called SummerApp. SummerApp is a matchmaking service for students to apply to many internships through one application, and for small businesses to vet and hire highly engaged interns. With the support and tireless dedication of mentors and the community, I’ve led my team to sign more than ten letter of intents with Portland small businesses to use SummerApp! One thing I’ve taken away from this journey is that every team member has something to contribute, and the greatest leader plays to those strengths.

Akshaj Mehta, Sci-Tech Kids Editor: In a UC Davis Math Olympiad and we got first place!

Madisen Garcia, Book reviewer and Contributing writer: I don’t think there has ever been a specific time, but I would love to fulfill a leadership role in any area of life.
