The following pieces are a reflection of my identity, along with some of the important skills and experiences I have worked hard at for the last few years. My studies in writing and rhetoric have been both varied and comprehensive. I have acquired skills both in and outside of the classroom, writing across a multitude of genres, including multimodal writing, analytical writing, poetry, and several forms of creative nonfiction. I believe my greatest accomplishments have happened as a result of this fusion of structured learning within an academic environment, and my own intellectual curiosity and love of the written word. I hope that the writing you find in this portfolio will be evidence of my passion, ambition, and innovation—not only as a writer, but as a person.
