What I plan to do after graduation:
I plan to move to San Francisco and find a job in which I can use my written and verbal communication skills to help others. I will continue to teach yoga on the side, and work on writing projects! Eventually, I would like to return to school to pursue a law degree or my masters in English to become a lawyer or professor.
How I want to make an impact in the world:
I love words and people. My passions and aspirations are firmly rooted in these two entities, and exploring the link between the two. I seek to harness the power of verbal and written language to someway help the state of humanity. I believe I will impact the world through educating others about important issues such as healthy living and nutrition. I currently teach yoga and teach nutrition in a first grade classroom through KIN, and I hope to continue bringing my passions into a classroom setting to help others.
Why I chose the Professional Writing Minor:
As an English major, I frequently write about literature and poetry, however I felt that there were issues I was passionate about that I had not had the opportunity to contribute to through writing. I saw the minor as the perfect opportunity to apply my writing skills to real life issues and engage with other like-minded, inspiring students. Already I have found a subgroup of UCSB students who are civically engaged and motivated to change the world through their writing. The minor is a great place to make connections with other students, as well as professors and professionals in the area.
My most memorable moment at UCSB:
The beauty of the flowers floating in the water at the memorial paddle out after UCSB was struck by terror in the events of spring 2014. That is the image that will always stick in my mind, reminding me of what it means to come together as a community; what it means to be Gaucho Strong.
What I will miss the most about UCSB:
The inspiring, resilient, beautiful, humble, genius people I have had the pleasure of meeting here. I will especially miss the women of Delta Gamma who I have grown to call my family over the past four years, and who have shaped my college experience in an infinite number of ways.
