Interest

Volunteering and giving back to my community have become very close to my heart. I served as Treasurer of the Writing Circle for the 2008-2009 academic year and coordinated a number of charitable events. During this time I also served as point-person in charge of organizing the volunteers and producing the presentation for CMU’s Make A Difference Day Writing Workshop. In addition, I was an active member of Sigma Tau Delta, the English Honor Society, for three years and participated in local fund-raising events, as well as read to kids at the local elementary school. Furthermore, I was part of the Fiction Collective, a campus-wide workshop-evaluation group for creative writers and we raised funds for local charities as well. Ultimately, being productive and helping others has always been important to me and I have striven to bring this dedication to every new challenge.

Summary

A fast learner, I have always had a passion for reading, writing, and the books that make it all possible. I consider myself creative and am a very organized and dedicated person. Staying busy and productive has been important to me and my success, both as a student and as a teacher.
