I chose Siena because of the close-knit, home-like feel of it. When I visited in high school I felt safe and comfortable, which is something I hadn’t really experienced at any of the other schools I applied to.
I chose English because it was something I had always enjoyed. I have learned how to think creatively and critically from diverse perspectives through doing what I love, which is reading and writing.
My most meaningful experience at Siena has been being published in Siena’s literary journal, Pendragon. I submitted a story I had written in Professor Lin-Greenberg’s Writing Short Fiction class, and to my surprise it was published. It was an awesome feeling!
The best book I have read recently is, “Black Boy” by Richard Wright. I read it for Dr. Wilhite’s African American Literature course and I had a hard time putting it down!
My dream is to go into publishing and editing. I love books and would love to be a part of the creation of them. This summer I am studying abroad in Athens, Greece where I plan to take a course on copywriting and the creative side of advertising.
