I am an architect major and Spanish minor. I am ranked as a freshman although I graduated from El Centro College with an associate's degree. I am originally from California but I am now living in Arlington. I love Arlington because I can ride my bicycle everywhere and there are parks everywhere. I am glad I am finally at UTA because I can grow with the university and help out others.
Focus: Architecture, the arts, music.

I am heavily interested in and influenced by science fiction, comic books, video games, and any novel or piece of literature involving a dystopia or some kind of search for one's identity and the meaning behind it. I am also heavily interested in the multiplicity of the term "literature" and how it applies to a lot more than just books and plays, but also to the mediums I have described before this.
Focus: MLA formatting, flow of ideas, grammar, and audience and how to write for them.
