Writing is one of the few passions that has followed me through my school career. From elementary school to college, I have excelled both outside the class and within. I am two quarters away from a Bachelors in Creative Writing, with a current cumulative GPA of 3.87. I am also involved in the selection process of submissions for Western Washington University's fine arts and literary magazine, "Jeopardy." The position requires a keen eye and ear for voice, style, and communication, as well as an understanding of our magazine's audience. I am also a classroom volunteer for the Asia University America Program. As a volunteer, I must utilize effective, often various, methods of communication in order for the Japanese exchange students to understand the instructors' given materials. Though my experience as a writer in a working environment is limited, my academic excellence indicates that I am capable of learning more in regards to what is required of me, and understanding what is expected.
