After graduation, I plan on working at Camp Olympia, a summer sports camp for kids ages 7-16 in Trinity, TX, for my 6th straight summer, and then start the PhD program at University of Texas at Arlingtion in the fall. I will be a Graduate Teaching Assistant and will be teaching two classes and taking three each semester. As of right now, I want to focus on contemporary American and British literature. While authors like John Steinbeck and Flannery O’Connor are the reasons I became an English major in the first place, I think that I will best be able to make a contribution to my field by focusing on more contemporary works. Authors such as Cormac McCarthy, Toni Morrison, Jonathan Lethem, Ian McKewan, and Dave Eggers are a few of my favorites, and I hope to be able to teach this type of literature in the future. While at UTA, I will be living with my older brother–a nurse in Dallas–and going to as many Ranger and Cowboy games as possible. I hope to budget my monthly expenses at Half-Price Books, and I look forward to starting at a brand new school and hopefully┬árepresent the ACU English Department well.
