"I first majored in journalism at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communications. I learned new skills in editing and creating video and audio content, news writing, interviewing, and proofreading scripts for broadcast production. The program definitely enhanced my ability to write analytically with attention to context and style. I switched my major to English for the last two years in college since I wanted to seek out a different career.

During my last year and a half at Arizona State University, I worked as a Writing Tutor. I enjoyed helping students from various personal backgrounds with critically thinking about their writing prompts, structuring their thoughts, and how to develop their thesis and main ideas.

At the ASU Writing Center, I had the opportunity of meeting so many compelling people—both students and other tutors—which led to thoughtful and intellectual conversations. It also gave me the skills needed to adapt to different personalities when tutoring.

As a former part-time tutor in college, I learned how to approach academic writing by first asking the question, what type of writing is required? The style, tone, and details used in students’ writing assignments would all depend on the subject.

This goes hand in hand with reading and reflecting as well. Between active listening, showing compassion and empathy, and coming up with creative approaches to problems, I found it rewarding to show how important abstract and metaphorical thinking when building off of structure, word/phrasing choice, grammar, and punctuation.

If you have any questions about my background or anything else, please feel free to reach out!" less...
