I am currently a student at UCF majoring in Writing and Rhetoric with a minor in Creative Writing and will be graduating in May 2017. Previously, I had received my BA in English Literature.
As a Writing and Rhetoric major, I have learned how to use different modes of communication through writing. I have come to appreciate how writing can be tailored differently for specific audiences, even if the basic information being relayed is the same. This is a particularly valuable skill in our modern digital world where writing comes in many forms across varied platforms for multitude of audiences.
I believe writing can inspire, can make you feel, can start discussions, can even change lives. I have always surrounded myself with stories and I wish to contribute to that world. I write to inspire others as I have been inspired.
In my nonfiction writings I seek to promote equality and justice. Specifically, I often write from a feminist perceptive. As a woman in modern society, I understand that sexism and misogyny is still highly prevalent in our society. Much of my nonfiction writing aims to expose this inequality and to explore the reasons behind it.
I also write fictional short stories some of which can be found on this website. I tell stories that are meant to entertain and engage the readers. Just as in my nonfiction writing, I often write with the purpose of empowering women. I seek to portray women in my stories as real, often flawed people.
Upon the completion of my undergraduate degree, I plan to go on to work towards receiving a Masters of Library Science. As I continue my schooling, I also plan to work on freelance writing of both fiction and nonfiction. Whatever the future brings I know that writing will always play a huge role.
