I am currently working on an English degree at Winston Salem State University, and will be graduating in December 2013. I have written two short stories that have been published in a magazine and have written two poems that won prizes in poetry contests. Most recently I was awarded a $1000.00 scholarship for a winning essay. Writing is my dream, my passion. I have been blessed with a true gift for writing. I am following my dream of a writing career later in my life because the choices I made in my youth caused me to veer off course for a while. I am now back on track and exactly where I need to be in my life and my writing career is the only missing piece. I am passionate about everything I do and I take great pride in any words that I put on paper, or online. I am confident that I can impress anyone who gives me a chance to write for them. I am currently an honor student with a 3.7 GPA. I take all tasks very seriously and I refuse to fail.
