I am a student at CSULA pursuing my B.A. in English-Creative Writing. I have an A.A. in English and a Certificate in Creative Writing/Screenwriting from Cerritos College where I graduated with a 3.3 GPA.

I am a hard-working, dedicated student who loves to read and write. I was raised on books and literature and have always found them enjoyable. I seek to pass this love of reading on to young students.

I taught a six week after-school reading program at McKibben Elementary in 2006 for my Gold Award in Girl Scouts. The kids loved reading and I coordinated activities to coincide with each book.

I was Copy Editor and Editor in Chief of my high school yearbook. I have proficient grammar and proofreading skills. I edit papers in my spare time for colleagues and friends.

I also completed AP English Language and AP English Literature in high school where I earned 4's on both exams (out of 5).

I have been working on screenplays as well as a novel. I have written a children's book in which I hope to have published in the near future.

I look to help anyone seeking to better their writing, or reading skills. I achieved high scores into the 700s on my SAT in 2006 on reading and writing.
