MA English & Creative Writing, Class of 2014

"I have been able to pursue both professional and academic dreams."

I am the middle child of a single mother. I spent my childhood bouncing between states and family members as various members of my family battled substance abuse and addiction. After graduating high school, I attended Indiana University at Bloomington, and worked to put myself through school. After graduating with a B.A. in History, I moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career as a writer while also returning to my studies to pursue my master's degree here at SNHU. I have managed to work full-time, pursue my writing career, and keep a high GPA here at SNHU. While working on my master's, I have made two short films, written two plays and a feature film. I have been able to pursue both professional and academic dreams.
