Who I Am  

A Little About Me

All my life I’ve had a passion for the visual and written arts and am aspiring writer. I spend my free time pursuing these passions as well as reading, my favorites include Madeline Miller, Donna Tartt, Oscar Wilde and J.D. Salinger. Learning is a love of mine, particularly when it comes to other cultures and far away places, all of which I hope to someday see. My love for culture stems from my love of reading, which I attribute to my parents. Both avid readers, they read to me each when I was younger, partially out of the desire to encourage my interest, and partially because it improved my speech and language skills. When I was born, I was diagnosed with moderate to sever hearing loss, and my parents were left uncertain of whether I would be able to read or speak. 17 years later they largely attribute my fluency and reading skills to that early on exposure to literature.
