Reflections: What does this document mean to you? What lessons did you learn from creating it? How is it relevant to your overall theme or purpose?

During this assignment, I was also able to explore and improve on my writing style. By creating this assignment, I was able to learn of the unique job opportunities in the real estate industry. This writing project relates to my overall theme and purpose of my future co-op placement in the real estate industry since it gives potential employers a sample of my written work.
