I am a current student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I am working on my Bachelor's in English Literature. Outside of my academics, I volunteer twice a week with Enrich, an ESL tutoring program which pairs individuals in the Chapel Hill community with college students for free English lessons. Also, this year I participated in Splash UNC, a program which brings current high school students to college campuses to take classes taught by college students. This year, I taught a class on Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice. As you may have guessed, I am most passionate about English literature. I believe that if there is such a thing as magic in the world, it is in literature. Writers can create entire worlds with the stroke of a pen; worlds far greater than could ever exist in reality. As Sidney writes, "Nature never set forth the earth in so rich tapestry as diverse poets have done; neither with pleasant rivers, fruitful trees, sweet-smelling flowers, nor whatsoever else may make the too-much-loved earth more lovely; her world is brazen, the poets only deliver a golden." It is the joy of the reader to delight in this rich tapestry, and that is the joy that I hope to pass along to my students. I fear that some students may become bogged down in English classes by terminology and technicality, and therefore have a disdain for the subject. What I aim to convey is that literature is far more exciting that all that, and far more important as well. I am a passionate supporter in education geared to excite students, to make them want to learn rather than being told to learn. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, yoga, cooking, and playing with my cats.
