University of Delaware
Bachelor of Arts, English
You Can't Fail As Long As You Learn | I entered the University of Delaware with excitement, apprehension, and ideas of endless opportunity. I supported my English major with minors in journalism, public policy, and environmental humanities, adding depth and multifaceted viewpoints to my understanding of the world. I witnessed inequity and environmental degradation, read novels and articles that exposed corruption, learned about food production through work on an organic farm, and saw fracking firsthand as I canoed down the Susquehanna River.
After six semesters, I graduated with new perspectives, several missteps, writing and research skills, a passion to combat injustices, and a refined sense of myself.
