Where is a favorite place to read or to write? Why do you like it?
I write everything down, all my thoughts, and then I put it together. I like revising, so the process of crossing out sentences and restructuring paragraphs is rewarding in the end when I have a finished piece of writing.

If applicable, what inspired you to take WR 323 and work at the center?
I want to be an English teacher someday and I thought that tutoring would help me practice teaching methods and help people with their writing, which is one of my passions.
