Guess who is now an ambassador? That's right, me! I have always been fascinated with them and their knowledge of Judson. I still remember my first ambassador. She was Ashley Glass, but she graduated right before I came to Judson. They just look so regal with their crimson jackets, black skirts and shoes.
In order to be an ambassador you must fill out a sheet of information and survey questions like, why do you like Judson? Or,what things do you participate in here at Judson? It's actually quite simple to answer, as long as you truly love Mother Judson.
Then, you have an interview with someone from student life, the president or vice-president, and the sponsor. I woke up Monday knowing that my interview was at 10:30 a.m. and, I have got to tell you, that I was beyond nervous. What questions were they going to ask me? Would I respond quickly enough? What scenario would I have to think through?
I went back to my dorm after math class and quickly got dressed in my pre-planned business attire. I walked over there determined to be at least a few minutes early. People wished me good luck. I got to the conference room with a fellow classmate still in there. I was 6 minutes early anyway. My nerves kept going through the roof and I had to struggle to keep my mind off of it. My friend Megan was who was in there and she soon came out, but I had to still wait. Oh my goodness. When will this be over? After a few centuries, Anita Smith (the ambassador president) popped her head out and grinned at me. I love Anita! I followed her in and found my seat in front of three very familiar faces. (I love my Judson!!) Susie Allison (student life), Anita Smith and Katie Patterson (ambassador sponsor) were smiling at me. My nerves immediately eased and I felt at home with them there just talking about Judson and who I was. Anita went over the rules and guidelines of being an ambassador and what it means. Katie asked me if I had time for it and what it meant to me. (It means the world to me!) I answered truly and as best I could and when they were done they dismissed me. Wow. That wasn't too bad!
I waited days to see if I had made it through the deliberation period. Well, the day came and I got a letter in my mailbox saying I made it! Wow, after all that worrying. So that was my best event so far this semester. Maybe I will get to take my future little sister on a tour.
