Where do you call home?

Minneapolis, Minnesota

What are you major(s)/minor(s)?

English Major and Secondary Education Minor

Why did you decide to major in the English Department?

I decided to major in English because of how applicable it is to other fields. As someone who loves history, the arts, and writing English was the perfect fit for me.

What has been your favorite English Department class? Why?

My favorite English department class has been Literary Theory and Criticism with Madu Mitra. I learned so much in this class. The way that I read, write and look at the world completely shifted after I took the class.

What are you looking forward to as a student in the English Department?

I am looking forward to taking Shakspeare with Matt Harkins. The only Shakspeare that I have read is Romeo and Juliet and I am excited to read more. I am also looking forward to the possibility of having more events and speakers on campus.
