    Articles

    Dear teachers,

    I would like to know whether the use of articles in the following sentence is correct or not.

    "Although I am a recent graduate, I have put myself through my school years by participating in (zero article) various extra-curricular activities and events, including the work as (zero article) Public Relations Officer of the Hostel Residents' Association and also (zero article) Welfare Officer of the Environmental Protection Society."

    Thank you.
