Student tech Daniella Phale enjoys fixing peers’ technology problems
Phale uses her previous Apple knowledge in this new role
JAG: Why did you decide to be a student tech?
Daniella Phale: It was something that sparked my interest, I’ve always been intuitive with Apple MacBooks and iPhones. Being a student tech was really up my alley.
JAG: What is your favorite part about being a student tech?
DP: Just making people smile because their computers are broken and they count on us to help them fix it. Especially when they get their problem fixed, they get so happy. That’s why I like it.
JAG: What is one thing you want students, teachers and/or parents to know about the MacBooks?
DP: Do not download VPN, keep your case on, and please just try not to break them.
JAG: What is one lesson or thing you have learned by being a student tech?
DP: It has really grown my social skills. I’ve learned how to talk to people and face problems head on instead of just pushing them to the side. I know a lot of social anxiety has been going on, but [being a student tech] has helped.
