I love storytelling and literature, and what I love most about being an English major is learning more about how the language works and is used to better understand everything I read and all it’s nuances. I love learning about different perspectives and how those perspectives change English and literature and how it is used.

Life After Ursinus

After I graduate I would like to go to graduate school to pursue either of my majors. I am partial to continuing previous research that I have done in the field of anthropology but I don’t want to give up the study of literature. Especially as my focuses in anthropology are identity and cultural storytelling, which have themes that tightly intertwine with the theory I have learned in my English courses.
