Majoring in English at KU gave me the opportunity to take courses in Rhetoric and Composition, Literature, and Creative Writing, providing me with a strong foundation in reading, writing, and critical thinking that have been invaluable as I work towards my PhD in Writing Studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. The professors I met and studied under along the way continue to be a source of inspiration and to shape the way I understand teaching and literacy. As an aspiring professor and scholar, I hope to play a role in shaping how my students view the world, the way my professors at KU did, by teaching English.
