Inspiring Adrian Staff Member? I am very fortunate to be apart of Adrian’s English department. All of the professors I have worked with are extremely diligent, collaborative, and passionate in regards to their work. I have especially enjoyed learning from Dr. Carman Curton, who challenges me to approach complicated topics with my own perspective, and of course, properly placed commas.
What concerns you in the world: As millennials, we are the first generation with 24/7 access to worldwide news. It is an immense privilege to have this constance source of knowledge at our fingertips at all times. The risk of this is, however, is sometimes we only tune in the news we want to hear rather than trying to understand alternative perspectives. I think if we as a generation can better develop the skill of learning which articles are credible versus biased, we will become more informed and develop the skill to care for ALL of humanity and the world.
Best friends are people who: Best friends are the people who you can depend on. They’re experts at balancing empathy with tough love, and are always there when you need to laugh. Most importantly, they’re the people who instill a drive in you and challenge you every day to be a better person.
A thank you to someone who helped get you to where you are? Before coming to Adrian, I was always a daughter, sister, friend, student, and athlete. The biggest transition coming into college was actually learning how to be a teammate and learning how to become selfless in order to contribute to the success of my team. This is something I could have never done without my relentlessly hard working, talented, caring teammates. They have truly changed the way I look at the world, and given me more confidence to excel in the presence of others. I owe them endless thank yous for always teaching me new things, picking me up when I fall, and creating friendships that will last a lifetime.
