I knew Ursinus was the perfect home for me when I first entered the gates for the first time and had my tour/interview. Right now I am a Junior here at Ursinus and have loved every minute of my time here so far. I am a hard working individual who believes that a positive attitude and determination never to give up are the keys to living a happy, successful life.
Since I was a young girl, I have always had a passion for writing. I love the way that even the most simplistic occurrences can be brought to life through the written word. I love that Ursinus offers such a variety of English courses ranging from the standard Intro to Creative Writing to the more imaginative Myth/Fairy Tale, to Monsters and the Middle Ages and others. All of these classes give students the opportunity to become exposed to a wide range of literature and writing styles and feel comfortable sharing their opinions and work with other students .
While I have had my ups and downs at Ursinus, I have not let my triumphs get to my head, or my failures break me down. Instead, I have learned to let them build me up and help me grow into a stronger person.
I am a lifeguard at the Ursinus Pool.
I hope to either Study Abroad in London in the Spring (CAPA London Spring 2015) or attend Cambridge University’s Creative Writing Program in the summer of 2015.
In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with friends, shopping, working out, laughing, writing, watching TV, listening to music, and living my life to the fullest, with a smile on my face at all times.
During the school week, I spend a lot of time reading novels, writing for my various English classes, and working out. When I am not in class, doing homework or exercising, you can find me hanging out with my beautiful Sorority Sisters.
Life After Ursinus
I would love to one day become a children’s author and help illuminate the mind of young readers.
