My dance team and I were Extreme Talent Showcase Grand National Champions in Pittsburgh during the summer following my senior year of high school. After rehearsing for nine months, we received the highest scoring routine of the national competition. This event represents the dedication and commitment my teammates and I showed to one another in order to accomplish our goal. We also felt a sense of pride to achieve this goal for our instructors who provided time and energy to help us become better dancers and people. As a dancer, I have learned the importance of companionship among your teammates. This factor is crucial due to the amount of time you spend with one another and can have an affect on the dancers stage presence, either positively or negatively. This lesson can be applied to my future working with a team of engineers, as I hope to be apart of a company with a positive team atmosphere.
Hi there, my name is Anna Grantier! I am currently enrolled in the College of Engineering at OSU for Engineering Undeclared. The two engineering majors that interest me the most are Mechanical and Industrial Engineering. I am a member of the Humanitarian Engineering Scholars (HES) program where I hope to attend a service learning trip later this year. At this time I am also interested in minoring in Humanitarian Engineering. HES heavily influences my career interests to combine my desire to serve with technical engineering. Around campus I am involved in the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) and hope to get involved with more organizations later this year. I was a dancer for fifteen years, so I plan to keep practicing while at OSU. I also enjoy listening to music, being outside, working out and hanging out with my friends around campus.
Top Five Character Traits
My top five character strengths from the VIA character trait test are spirituality, kindness, honesty, gratitude, and humility. I can identify with all of these characteristics as well as the order that they are presented in. The first trait, spirituality, represents the morals I live my life by. These values effect my decision making and how I treat others on an everyday basis. Secondly, I portray kindness through showing appreciation to my friends in small ways. Whether that is buying ice cream, cleaning dishes, or just listening for my friends, I try to express kindness in these ways. Honesty is the third trait on my list. In my life, I believe honesty can always count for something, even if you make a mistake, being honest shows courage. The fourth trait, gratitude, is embodied through striving always be grateful for the people and experiences I have in life. This perspective allows me to have a positive outlook during trying situations. Lastly, humility is a trait that connects to me in how I select appropriate times to share accomplishments, such as in interviews. I feel as if all of these characteristics embody certain aspects of my life.

On Saturday November 2nd, 2019, my peer mentor group and I went to Kafe Kerouac around 5 pm. This activity was a great way to get to know my group members better and explore more of Columbus. The coffee shop we visited is located on N High St just north of the University District. After approximately a ten minute walk, my group and I arrived and ordered hot beverages to warm up from the colder temperature outside. The staff was friendly and very efficient when preparing our drinks. I also enjoyed the decor which included comfortable chairs that provided an inviting feeling for customers. The seating inside was limited for three of us to sit together, so we sat outside. Our group engaged in positive conversation, reflecting on our first semester of college and learning more about each other. Another aspect of this assignment that I enjoyed was walking off of campus and familiarizing myself with other local shops. I would recommend this cafe to anyone looking for a quite place to study or somewhere to visit off of campus. Overall, I would not change anything about this experience, but in the future I will most likely try a new cafe to experience more of Columbus.
