  • Hi! I am an English major with minors in Creative Writing and French. I am a sophomore at UTA, but I should graduate early due to dual credit hours. I aspire to be a book editor after I graduate and work for a publishing company in New York. In my free time, I like to read (fiction and nonfiction), play guitar, and hang out with my friends. I like working with other students at the Writing Center because it reminds me of writing techniques I don’t often think about and inspires me to work on my own writing.
