I was one of seven Northwestern English Majors selected to write an Honors thesis. My thesis explores the epistolary correspondence between Abigail Adams and Mercy Otis Warren during the American Revolution, specifically focusing on their employment of classical and modern literary performativity as a tactic to establish women's historical and literary voices. I want to better understand how these women work to reimagine the relationship between the classical and the modern, the Stoical and the sentimental, the public and the private, the national and the domestic, and the masculine and the feminine.

My essay entitled "A More Than Double Life" won the Morris Kaplan Writing Prize, part of Northwestern's  2019 - 2020 Kaplan Institute's Annual Humanities Prize Competition. 

This essay was for the course "Shakespeare: Global, Local, Digital." For this paper, we were supposed to analyze a cinematic adaptation of Othello and explore how issues from Shakespeare's Othello are reframed in this rendition.

I have always been a lover of poetry. With songs, the lyrics need to move at the speed of human thought. However, with poetry, I can pack my lines with density and nuance, encouraging a reader to take their time dissecting every particular word choice in order to get the most out of the poem's meaning. 

I took a poetry class in which I had to write a variety of poems with a focus on specific elements of poetry, such as diction, repetition, rhyme, and meter.
