Students working with the UNCG Speaking Center volunteered this summer at the Interactive Resource Center. They helped homeless individuals, seeking employment, with their interviewing skills. Senior Music Education / Communication Studies double major Andria Williamson tells her experience, in this video. She found that building confidence was vital. “This is like going outside the mold and actually helping someone with themselves first… Once you do that it’s like everything else falls into place.” (Full transcript is at http://speakingcenter.uncg.edu/irc/slideshow.)

Undergraduate Natalie Jones, alumnus Evan Zakia and Speaking Center Director Kim Cuny are other Spartans seen in the video, produced by Logan Dunn for the street paper Greensboro Voice. Assistant Director Erin Ellis also volunteered. The Speaking Center will volunteer at the IRC throughout the year.
