Senior Creative Writing Major

Writing has saved me from mental destruction. People need a way to confront the things that lurk underneath their surface and for me, that way to find peace, is to write. You can literally write about anything and create vivid images and languages and find different angles and perspectives to situations or experiences that otherwise wouldn’t have ever been reached without that type of reflection. I love to carefully craft language and play with form. and writing is the place I am truly creating meaningful things to heal myself. There are certain things I would’ve never confronted culturally, or societally, or would have even questioned if it wasn’t for writing. Writing has made me a person who needs to think about things deeper. It hurts if I don’t.
