Capability 10: Advocating for children. Constantly advocating for children, Vangstad worked to ensure that children lived in an environment that enhanced their problem-solving abilities. Her advocacy ranged from lobbying legislators regarding policy to organizing local merchants in the interest of clothing very poor children. Fundamental to her activity was her desire to create conditions that would facilitate student's potential as problem solvers. Capability 11: Planning and organizing effectively.

When the club meeting was over, the secretary returned the file. Because Vangstad had previously taught students how to run their own meetings using Robert's Rules of Order, she was free to assist students in other ways. Capability 12: Ensuring self-renewal.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
