1. Describe your experience as an English major in six words.
Write, revise. Write, revise. Write, revise.
2. If everyone moved to Mars but you missed the flight, which three literary characters would you want to keep you company?
Atticus Finch because he’s interesting and intelligent, Jay Gatsby because he can throw a great party, and Jane Eyre because I really just want to be her best friend.
3. If you could create your own English class, what would it be?
I would create an English class about novels written from the child’s point of view. Children have such a unique perspective and I have always admired authors who can capture it so imaginatively.
4. If you could give your Freshman self one piece of advice for an English class what would it be?
Don’t be afraid to speak up. Also, don’t expect to get any reading done on those 3rd libe couches.
