Where do you hope to be in 5 years?

What is your major?

My major is English because ever since I was a little girl I always loved to read and write. I was good in my English courses in primary and secondary school. And this was my favorite class from elementary school to high school. In my heart I always knew I wanted to become a writer. While studying at John Jay College I learned that you can do so much with English Major because the skills you learn while getting the degree you can apply to any career field. As an English Major you build on skills such as critical reading and analysis, verbal presentation, argumentation, and persuasive writing, recognizing and creation engaging narratives, research, problem solving, and creativity.

Why John Jay?

I wanted to go to John Jay College to be able to diversify myself from others by getting a degree in English and learning about the justice side of literature. As well as learning to look at the world through a criminal justice lens.

What high school did you go to?

I attended High School of Fashion Industries. I wanted to become a fashion designer. This school helped me develop more my love for literature and writing. It also helped me develop my construction (Machine sewing, hand sewing, pattern making etc) skills and my fashion illustration skills. I made the big change from fashion design to English because I wanted to learn more about reading and writing and become an expert in the field.
