I am a senior majoring in English, which means I like reading and writing so much that I want to do it all the time! If you are looking for a sounding board or an extra pair of eyes, I am here to listen and help, and the whole process is just as fun and rewarding for me as it hopefully is for you. I would say I have the most experience as a writer in literary analysis and creative writing, but I really love organizing, restructuring and refining any essay and reading about new, interesting topics. When I’m not at the Writing and Speaking Center, you will probably see me giving tours, eating, napping, and dancing in Dancefest!
