I see my work as a copy editor as an opportunity to enable the sharing of words and ideas; that my communications work enables expression and effective engagement, from the budding NGO to the established higher education department.
My personal projects fall more into blogging, articles, and academic work on social theory. I am developing an ebook on my recent India travel experiences, as well.
With writing, I strive to speak the truth, recognizing the responsibility that comes with representation and sharing people's stories. I have a performance studies background: I approach society as a collective construction formed and reinforced through actions and words. With that comes a dedicated sense of social justice and equality, and a strong belief in human good and the potential for change.
Degree: Bachelor of Fine Arts
Field of Study: Theatre Arts, Philosophy
University / College: DePaul University
B.F.A. in Philosophy and Theatre Arts:
The philosophy gave me a rigorous academic environment in which to develop my writing abilities, while the theater opened up my creativity and communication skills.
As a student, my writing skills were carefully honed: from academic papers I built the ability to analyze and construct an argument, and in the artistic area, I developed a voice and an eye for detail.
My work as an Interfaith Scholar put communication at its core, and I wrote articles on various issues that were published on our well-read blog. There is an article example in my portfolio that received more than 400 hits in the first couple of days once posted on our blog; it was republished in a campus newsletter after it caught so much attention.
