OWX Reflection

The 2017 Online Writing Exchange was great I absolutely loved it. It helped me grow not just as a writer but also a person, it made me be more courageous as a person. I feel like Cole was a very good mentor he was great! I felt like through my writing I got really close to him. He was always so nice about looking over my writing, and he would always ask me where I thought some stuff could go that was great. Cole help make me a way more improved writer!

He is really tall and has ginormous hands that could probably go over your head and fit like a hat. Coach K. also has a size 17 shoe, so whenever he stomps on the gym floor it echo’s thorough out.

Get better, there is always room for improvement.” Coach K. is also very motivational in a game. When you are down with him speaking, he might surge a great comeback. He just has that spark in his voice tha…
