Summer Operation Assistant Application 1. What experiences have you had that would help you be successful in this position? What skills have you

Hey! Attached is an application to a job and I am worried that there are some awkward wording and gammar mistakes. Can you help me look at it? Thank you!
Summer Operation Assistant Application 1. What experiences have you had that would help you be successful in this position? What skills have you learned that would make you effective in this role? This semester, I served as the New Project Chair for APO, a service fraternity at Emory. Through the experience, I have learnt to communicate with different organizations and arrange proper times and places for different projects. Even since I became the New Project Chair, I have introduced 7 new different projects to our chapter as well as coordinating them. Because each project requires me to post sign-up, send out reminders, and send in hours, I need to be organized and responsible in order to implement these tasks. Being on the service committee has also enabled me to know how to be a good team member as we try to plan events together. My experience as a research assistant has also helped me to be prepared for this job. This semester, I worked as a research assistant for a senior at Emory. The task required me to have good time management skills and be attentive to details. It involved searching and identifying relevant articles so I had to be very careful when I was scanning all the newspapers. I have also learned how to manage my time better as there was only one deadline for the project and I was working on my own most of the time. In order to finish my task on time, I created a spreadsheet to organize all the articles and set myself a timeline to make sure things are under control. In the end, I finish my work a week ahead of the deadline and I was willing to do extra work to help my partner to finish his work, because I feel that it is my responsibility to do so and to finish the overall task on time. For this job, I am willing to take on new responsibilities and I am confident the skills from both these two experiences will enable me to do well. I believe that being detail-orientated, responsible and dependable as well as having the organizational and communication skills will make me effective in being a summer operation assistant. 2. How do you organize the various tasks and deadlines in your life? The two main principles that I hold to organize my tasks and deadlines are following the plan and getting ahead. This semester, I am taking 4 courses while serving as the vice president for Harry Potter Alliance, the new project chair for APO and working as a research assistant. In order to fulfill all my responsibilities and finish my tasks one time, I carefully plan everything and set goals for myself to finish my tasks ahead of time. In this way, even if I am behind my plan, I will still be able to meet the deadlines. I also prioritize what I am responsible for as well as trying to accurately estimate the time I need to put in in finishing a task. When I was working as a research assistant, I worked every Friday after I got out of my class because I knew that was what it took to get the job done. I am also aware the importance of having a reasonable schedule because I know that it takes time to do a job well and having a bunch of things on the to do list will only hinder my ability to achieve that goal.
