BA Creative Writing & English - Screenwriting

"I am being cultivated into my writing career with the curriculum at SNHU."

I am a woman who is ambitious, determined, and full of strength to conquer any goal I set to accomplish. Quitting is not an option for me. I have found fulfillment in pursuing a writing career. I enjoy creative storytelling so much that my vivid imagination runs free.

Prior to returning to school, I was at the lowest point in my life. It was during those dark moments of solitude where I had to rediscover my dreams, visions, goals and strategies. In other words, my life had restarted in another direction. Every day is a new learning experience for me, and there is much to take in as I travel through this journey called life. Each day I awaken to passion by taking small steps into my career as a professional writer. My passion is to write books, screenplays, and stage plays. To be honest, my dream world will become a reality soon. Right now, I am being cultivated into my writing career with the curriculum at SNHU.

So far, I have encountered highly knowledgeable professors, and my academic advisor rocks! Patricia has held my hand throughout the process. I look forward to our weekly phone calls. Her gentle guidance has created a smooth transition for me at SNHU. Daily, I encourage myself to keep pushing because destiny awaits me. Storytelling is a gift to me, and I am doing whatever is necessary to live my dreams. My mom's strength is an inspiration to me. Although she did not get an opportunity to live out her dreams, I have picked up the torch and am moving forward. Even though my mom's dreams are resting in the grave, she would be proud to know that I refuse to give up. Life gives access to many open doors. It is just a matter of me taking a few steps, knocking, and turning the knob for doors to open. Success lives within me, and it is fun pulling out hidden potentials.
