I obtained my B.A in English language and literature, with a minor in music, at the University of Washington, Seattle. Since high school, my passion has been traveling and making connections with people of different ages and cultures. I took a gap year after high school to backpack in Europe, spent a summer in Russia at a children's camp, and did a summer study abroad learning about social justice in India. My last quarter of college was an internship teaching ESL in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. While I love studying literature of all genres, I feel the most impactful literary experience is one that deeply resonates with the reader, and inspires them to write their own stories. This is why I am an advocate for detailed, creative, and personal essay writing. The most powerful essay or piece of academic writing is one which is inspired by the writer's personal instincts and experiences. In my tutoring, I strive to find literature or experiences which ignite creativity in an essay. When I'm not traveling, or planning my next trip, I enjoy reading, hiking, playing piano, and finding new music.
