I'm a sophomore at Princeton University, and in the fall semester I'll begin the Creative Writing program there. I'm so excited! I was first really exposed to poetry in the 5th grade, and I owe that teacher my very soul for bestowing me with this gift. Writing poetry is my passion, and I have yet to figure out what I'll do to pay the bills and support my habit of scribbling words on paper, as if words could save a wretch like me, and hoping you all hear echoes of yourselves in my voice.
