Meet the Writer

In my real life, this is what I do: I’m a rising senior at Christopher Newport University and I grew up in Richmond. I am majoring in English and double minoring in psychology and journalism. I have been the news editor for the school newspaper, The Captain’s Log, since I was a sophomore.

And this is what I do for fun: I love to paint my nails and do nail art in my free time. I have lost count of how many different polishes I own, but if I had to guess, it’s close to 100 polishes. I can spend hours trying out different techniques and designs! 

One of my favorite pastimes is reading. I love reading YA novels. There’s something about the optimism of coming-of-age stories that I really love. I also enjoy sinking into a good historical fiction book.

When I have time for myself, I especially like to rewatch some of my favorite shows like “Doctor Who” or “That ’70s Show.” 

My favorite place I’ve traveled is Greece! I took a short study abroad trip there during the summer and loved exploring, trying new foods and enjoying the beautiful views! I hope to go back there one day!

I would like to travel to Singapore or Japan. I’m kind of a foodie, so I think I’d have some really great meals there!

Three people I most admire:

  1. My grandfather because he is the kindest and most giving person I know.
  2. My mom because she is incredibly smart, and I learned how to be independent from her.
  3. My dad because he taught me how to work hard and, no matter how big or small the task, to give it my all.

On my bucket list:

  1. See the Northern Lights in person. That would be amazing!
  2. Learn how to crochet little amigurumi creatures. I think they’re the cutest and I’m a sucker for little plushies.
  3. Ski in Europe! I’ve been skiing since I was three and I’ve skied in the U.S. and Canada, but never in Europe. I hear it’s a different experience!
