June / July 2013 Introduction: Hello everyone, my name is Madison, and Its_Madison in-game. I am an 11th grade student enrolled in advanced courses on my online high school and at my local community college. I hope to major in either bio-psychology or chemistry when I get to university and start a career as a research psychologist or chemist. I am currently trying to get all of my chemistry, biology, and psychology lower level classes done for a bio-psychology degree before I graduate high school. I absolutely love learning about chemistry, psychology, sociology, and the inner workings of the human brain, and hope to do research on neurodegenerative diseases and their effects on society during and after university. Besides academics, I am involved in several clubs related to my intended majors of study. I currently volunteer in a professor’s psychology lab at a local university once a month, and I hope to work my way up to become a full-time research assistant before I graduate high school. When I am not busy with schoolwork and being in the lab, I enjoy reading, swimming, listening to music, and browsing the internet. I was previously staff on MeepCraft from early March to late May of 2016. I left the team because I needed to shift my focus from MeepCraft to my schoolwork and some personal issues that impeded with my time the last month I was on the team. Since then, I have been able to balance my schoolwork, extracurriculars, and MeepCraft, and can confidently say that I have enough time to dedicate to moderating again. Why should you be Helper? -Work Ethic: I have a strong work ethic, evident in my ability to succeed in high-level courses at school, my work in the lab, and my previous work as a staff member. As a staff member, I completed a great quantity of modreqs while also making it a priority to thoroughly complete all modreqs and make sure that players were satisfied with my service. I also completed outlines for some projects on Trello, most of which have been archived as of now. -Professionalism: I have a professional demeanor, especially when it comes to working with others and helping people. I am open-minded and willing to work with other people’s ideas even if they conflict with my own. I am also a problem solver, meaning that I do not give up easily when I am helping someone that has a problem. -Experience: I was previously staff for nearly three months; a Helper for exactly one month, and a Moderator for nearly two months. I know the amount of dedication and work that is expected from a staff member, and I know how to deal with the pressure that staff members often have to face. -Activity/Availability: I believe that I am sufficiently active on MeepCraft despite schoolwork and extracurriculars taking up a large chunk of my time. Because I am enrolled in an online high school, I have quite a bit of flexibility with the times I choose to do schoolwork during the day, with the exception of a chemistry class I take at my community college. I am available on Mondays and Fridays anytime between 8 am to 3-5 pm PST, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays anytime between 8 am to 2-3 pm PST, and Saturdays and Sundays anytime between 10 am to 8 pm PST. I believe that my activity during the times when most American players are at school and players from other timezones are online sets me apart from the other helper candidates. What are your weaknesses? -Immaturity: I can be immature at times. However, I make sure that I am only immature in the appropriate situations and that my immaturity does not get to the point where it becomes offensive. -Shyness: When I was staff, I was too shy to give my opinions and, as a result, didn’t participate in some staff matters (except for modreqs, player reports, and bans). However, I believe I have improved significantly since my tenure; I am more comfortable in /g, discord chat, and forums, and I think that I would also be far more comfortable sharing my opinions with other staff members if I am accepted.
