I aim to make a positive difference in the world by connecting individuals to their interests through writing, speaking, and my pursuits in leadership, communications, agriculture and fitness.
I'm a current junior at WTAMU, and am passionate about writing/speaking. The spoken and written word alike are tantamount to humanity's autograph. Not only do we need to strive for excellence in terms of the execution of our words, but they need to convey just the right meaning with just the right tools.
I enjoy eloquence and use it when I can. I admire the speaking styles of Chris Rock and Scott McKain. I'm an expert at taking fifteen minutes of meticulous observation and condensing it into a speech that wonderfully communicates my judgements in 1:15-2 minutes. I love taking a piece of writing, whether it be my roommate's college scholarship essay or my friend's latest romance novel, and suggesting adjustments that keep the integrity of the writer's intent while manifesting a more complete concept for readers. While I have volumes of experience in some areas and little in others, I won't be bested in terms of my desire to help bridge gaps and the lengths to which I will go to augment understanding.
