I love being involved in society and I also like to witness different aspects of life. I have worked in the food industry for four years but I've also volunteered all around Grand Rapids. I love this city and some day I hope to write about and advertise how great it is. I love God but I'm not one of those crazy people who try to shove religion down others' throats. I love discussing real, modern topics and hearing different points of view. I don't write because I think it is an escape from life; I write so that life doesn't escape from me. I would love to explore the online writing world further as I delve into my studies which I hope to expand with learning code as well as graphic design to add to my Writing major and Advertising/Public Relations minor.

Teresa W. is a writing major with an LGBT studies minor. By day, she consults, attends classes, and occasionally interns. By night, she sleeps. A lot.

Her main focuses in her writing major are fiction, multimodal and design rhetoric, and consulting with writers. Her dream is to get a PhD in Rhetoric and Composition and possibly work as the director of a writing center.

Watch out, Pat—she’s coming for your job.
