Relevant Coursework

  • Computer Programming: I learned the basic applications of designing programs and writing code using Microsoft Visual Basic 2010 through hands-on experience creating programs assigned by my professor.
  • Fiction Writing: I learned the foundations of writing creatively and using imagination in order to think deeper and grasp the concept that there is no right or wrong way to tell a story. I learned that fiction writing encompasses the mind and forces us to go beyond what is asked of us.
  • Professional Editing: I learned editing, grammar and mechanics skills: edited hard copy using copy marking symbols, and electronically using track changes. In addition, I learned to make custom headings and electronic tables of content. We also learned to edit comprehensively.
