Leadership roles helped her mature

Take2 news team member and recent graduate Joy Baranick was recently featured on the UW-Stout News website. We’ve shared that article here:
Following is a Q&A with one of the 714 students who received diplomas Dec. 19 at UW-Stout. It was originally published on Dec. 29, 2015 by University Communications.
Name: Joylin Baranick
Hometown: Woodbury, Minn.
Major: Human development and family studies
Why did you choose UW-Stout?
I heard though other alumni that it was a great school, and it had the major I wanted.
What are the biggest challenges you faced in getting your degree?
For me it was learning to be organized. Once I figured it out, everything just fell into place.
What stands out about your college experience?
I would say all of the leadership experience that I have gained. I started here in 2012 as a shy and quiet person, and now I have done so much on campus that no one would use the words shy or quiet as a descriptor for me. I was the hall chair for Hall Events Committee in South Hall, resident adviser in Hansen-Keith, HDFS mentor for my major, a building manager for the student center, teaching assistant for one of my HDFS classes and team manager for the “Take2!” student news team. All of my experiences have helped me land me a job before graduation!
What’s next?
I was an Intern this past summer for Target and was offered a management position. I will be starting full time with Target in January.
