To me, writing is a way of expressing my thoughts and feelings on a certain subject. Everyone has their own opinions when it comes to different topics. This is why writing is one of my favorite topics. Sometimes there are times when I encounter writer’s block, while other times I can’t stop writing. My favorite stage in the writing process is the brainstorming part and brain dumping what I need to write in my paper. I mainly enjoy personal narratives and other forms of creative writing. I want to share my experiences through my papers and write about topics I am passionate about. That’s why when I was writing my college essays I found that I had a lot to write about because it is about my own experiences, so it ended up being hard to cut things out. However, I kept the parts that I felt made me unique and that answered the prompts in order to meet the length requirements. 

 Although in some classes I might not have as much artistic freedom, I still have a chance to analyze evidence pieces and share my thoughts about certain points. As a dance teacher I have worked with dancers at different ages and levels so I hope to use that as a skill as a writing consultant. I hope to help students with expressing their thoughts through their papers and addressing any questions they have. I believe being a writing consultant will not only allow students to strengthen their writing and communications skills, but it will also give me a chance to learn how others write their papers and improve my skills relating to being a tutor.

In my free time I like to work on my music compositions, play piano, read books, bake, and hang out with my family and friends.
