What I Love about Writing
My favorite thing about writing is the freedom to create. An evocative poem creates feelings through a unique arrangement of words. A work of fiction creates worlds and people that would otherwise never exist. Even academic writing brings together information and ideas in new ways, presenting a worldview unlike that of anyone else. As a writer, I am given the power to create any of these works–or anything else I want. The ability to craft something entirely new and unique using the same 26 letters that have been in use for centuries is truly exhilarating.
How I Stay Involved
I am periodically active in Ursinus’s Theater department, either onstage or behind the scenes. As far as clubs, I am regularly involved in Breakaway Student Productions, the student theater group on campus, as well as the men’s club volleyball team.
Life After Ursinus
Though I am loathe to think about leaving this wonderful campus, I do hope to work as a high school English teacher following my graduation.
An Unusual Fact About Me
I am anomsic, which means I have no sense of smell whatsoever (the equivalent of blind or deaf).
