I am currently a student at Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois, pursuing a Bachelor's Degree with a double-major in Creative Writing and Secondary Education. I've received two separate writing awards through various collegiate institutions, and my work has been published in three different art/ literary magazines. My interests and areas of personal expertise include mental health as a whole (with a primary focus on Bipolar Disorder), Secondary Education, Creative Writing, film and television, video games, graphic novels, and travel, among other things. I volunteered for some time at an adult basic education center after myself receiving a G.E.D, and am thus well versed in issues of continuing education. I transferred to my current college a few years after receiving said G.E.D. and as such am also wholly familiar with the experiences of non-traditional students. I am a diligent researcher and prolific writer, and I look forward to working with you.
