I love the writing portions of my English major as well as reading in-depth to texts like Marlowe I never would’ve read on my own. I get to push my limits and learn so much about genres I didn’t realize were out there, like 9/11 Literature. I chose to be an English major because I love writing and reading.

Most Memorable Moment in Class

Blessing our books with holy dirt in Fable and Fantasy Writing and getting to meet Maggie Stiefvater.

Life After Ursinus

Pursuing a PhD in physics and working in the aerospace industry. Eventually I want to go into science communication and policy. I also will continue to write and try to publish a novel.
