Probably the reading program. More schools than I expected were interested in participating, and it was very satisfying to work with them to set up the program.

Learning experience

To always come into work with a positive attitude. I got nothing done when I was in a bad mood or would take things personally.

What advice would you give?

Customer service is for any job you'll ever have. Make people comfortable and do everything you can to accommodate their requests, and do it with a smile!
