My passion is writing and helping others to write. I cannot begin to describe to joy I feel when creating a new story, or the glee of editing someone else’s work. Books can change lives. They are a source of knowledge, adventure, and strength. The stories that I write are to teach people, through fiction, how to thrive in life.
My career goals are to be an author and senior copy-editor at a publishing company. In order to reach this goal I will need experience in the field and the corresponding degree. I currently have an internship at one such company and I enjoy my work there very much. Now, I have begun my college journey toward a Bachelor’s degree in English with an emphasis in Creative Writing.
Thank you for your consideration.
