In the KU English Department, I learned to analyze language and appreciate (and utilize) its meaning and power. I learned to think critically and to develop persuasive arguments. I constructed and deconstructed narratives, discovering patterns and meaning in their crafting. These are absolutely critical skills in the practice of law. I use them every day. Studying literature opened windows to other peoples, places and perspectives. The stories opened my mind to new ways of seeing. To have developed such practical skills while simultaneously growing as a citizen and as a human is an opportunity I will cherish forever.
