As if that wasn't exciting enough, many rising freshman thanked me personally for the article. It felt so amazing! There's nothing more that a writer loves than seeing the (positive) impact her work has on others.
This is a lesson I learned from a TED Talk once: helping others is the most sure-fire way to receive help. It's not the talent of an author that pushes them to success, but rather the help they receive from her supporters (that's you!). Always make your goals in life personal, and always make them helpful to the greater good.
(Even if it just means less of a headache for 900 freshmen)
