Brief Biographical Sketch:

I am from Dallas, Texas, where I did a lot of journalism in high school! Here at Yale, I am really interested in both literary criticism and creative writing, especially fiction writing. I have particular interests in 19th century literature as well as Medieval literature, but I have favorite books from many different centuries! When I'm not in class, most of my time is spent as a sprinter and long jumper on the track and field team, showing visitors as a tour guide, and singing with the Yale Unorthojocks, Yale's only all-athlete a cappella group!

H4904: Why Do We Read? in Splash Spring 2024 (Apr. 06, 2024)
English and Humanities classes often offer us texts to read, operating under an assumption that we should read them. But why do we read, and what can we do to get the most out of what we are reading? In this class, we will look at excerpts from important literature and poetry and learn strategies that we may use to get the most out of what we are reading.
