What It's Like Being on the HCFSU Executive Board From Facebook Chair Addyson Crosby

Addy Crosby has been a member of Her Campus at FSU since her freshman year. She has been a writer, an editor and now she holds the executive position of Facebook Chair! I had the opportunity to ask her a few questions last week on her journey in this organization and why she holds it so dear to her heart.

Her Campus (HC): Before being apart of the executive board, what drove you to become a writer for Her Campus?

Addy Crosby (AC): I wanted to write for Her Campus because I was an incoming freshman at FSU and was looking for ways to be involved! I’ve always loved writing so it seemed like a great fit.

HC: Did you hold any other positions before applying for the executive board and what was that experience like?

AC: Before joining the executive board, I was an editor for a semester. I loved learning more about the editing side of a publication and got to meet some great girls in the writer group that I had. My time as an editor helped me realize that that may be more what I want to do as a career in the future.

HC: Why did you want to be a part of the executive board and why the Facebook chair?

AC: I applied for Exec because I loved Her Campus, and the more I got involved the more I seemed to love it. I hoped that my passion for the organization would help me make an impact no matter what my position was on exec. Facebook is a great fit for me because it’s a caption-oriented social platform, and writing is what I love to do. I knew I could get the voice of the brand across on this platform! I was also really excited to grow our following and utilize new features on the site, too.

HC: What are your duties as Facebook chair?

AC: As Facebook chair, I lead a team of six AMAZING girls (or as I call them, my angels) to post on the platform daily, which includes the articles that go live each day, captions, and more recently, stories! I also help lead giveaways and increase engagement.

HC: What is your favorite part about being on the exec team?

AC: My favorite part of being on exec is getting to know my fellow exec members. This group is made up of some of the most hard-working, talented and hilarious girls, and what may be considered ‘work’ never really feels like it because of them. I also love being a resource for girls in the chapter! I’m always excited to get to know someone new and help them out when I can.

HC: Do you see yourself continuing on the executive board in your upcoming years?

AC: I absolutely hope to continue being part of exec. Her Campus is so important to me, so for as long as I’m able to be an asset to the organization I definitely want to be.

HC: Do you have any advice for others wanting to run for an executive position in their organization?

AC: If you have any interest in applying to your organization’s executive board, do it! I didn’t feel the most qualified when I applied, but Hannah (the HCFSU president) and Lauren (the HCFSU editor-in-chief) saw potential and took a chance on me. I’m learning new things every day and thoroughly enjoying the experience, which never would’ve happened if I let my insecurity or doubt get the better of me. Nothing changes if nothing changes!
