I’m a young woman with a passion for the written word and the city of Philadelphia, where I’ve lived, studied, and worked for the past four years. To make the most of the knowledge I’ve gained from my time as an undergrad at Temple University, I hope to begin a professional career in editing and publishing or digital marketing.
In the past I have had the opportunity to tutor students in writing at a high school in Japan; this improved some of my own skills, introduced me to new cultures, allowed me the chance to form lasting friendships overseas, and also temporarily led me down the path of teaching, which I still have an affinity for. I continued to exercise my writing and teaching talents through a tutoring position at my university’s writing center and paid and freelance blogging. During my time at Temple I also studied small press publishing and self-published a chapbook of my own poetry under the guidance of professor and poet Brian Teare. Recently I’ve expanded my professional experience through the world of digital marketing and social media strategy at my internship in the Communications Department of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, a culturally rich institution and one of America’s oldest public art museums.
Soon I hope to find time to reignite my site Wordy Women Collective — an online hub run through contributors that will house the work of women writers, editors, photographers, and entrepreneurs. Until then, I’m working on forming connections with other like-minded men and women and finding a creative place to use my current skills and gain new ones.
Artphart’s Blog is the home of a small sampling of my writings. After scribbling through sketch books and journals covered with peeling Lisa Frank stickers in my youth, I thought it might be a better idea to fill up white space on the web.
