I work with LitLife, a New York City-based organization dedicated to innovative approaches to literacy education, where I craft customized K-12 reading and writing curriculum; create supportive literacy resources for the student, teacher, and classroom; design professional development presentations and materials; and serve as our resident videographer/photographer in our partner schools. I think the value of my English degree, or of my experience as an English major, soars beyond existing "utility" or accumulation of skills (though the latter -- research methodology, creative and critical thinking, articulateness, and personal writing growth, to name a few -- is forever appreciated and deep-rooted). As I see it, an English major considers stories to be tremendously powerful and invaluable. This drives my work and my reality.
