About

I’ve been writing stories for as long as I could write. I’m currently working on a novel. When I’m not reading and writing, I’m a big Lego and Nintendo fan. I probably have more Lego sets than I’m willing to admit.

Most Memorable Moment in Class

Any time spent in workshops in Creative Writing classes. Hearing what other people had to say about my writing was an incredibly valuable experience. Hearing someone laugh at a funny story I had written was incredibly fulfilling, and it’s always great to get constructive feedback on how to improve.

How I Stay Involved

I’m currently working with Dr. Kozusko to format essays into HTML for an online Shakespeare journal.

My Experience

I first heard about Ursinus through their Creative Writing Scholarship. Even though I didn’t win, I found the writing community at Ursinus to be a great, welcoming place . Through programs like The Lantern and Lit Soc, I came to be a part of this close-knit community.
