Owl was never the most outspoken of her company. She was incredibly proud of her work and most of the time when she submitted a project her supervisors were extremely impressed. After a few months she wanted to be a little more known in order to get a promotion in the future. Her coworkers always thought she was quiet and probably wouldn’t ever try and move up, but after a long talk with her friend, Eagle, she decided in order to make herself known she had to stand out. Instead of being shy at meetings she spoke up and took credit for her work, managed small meetings and assisted executives. In other words, she did what nobody expected her to do and it paid off with a nice promotion in the end.
