I love working for College Town because I can write about any topic I choose and it can be personal or objective.

My first piece for College Town was a series on my journey with mental health. I had never shared that side of me before, but I am so glad I did. By allowing myself to be vulnerable and admit that everything wasn’t always okay, I encouraged others to do the same and seek help if they needed it.

I can write about anything which can sometimes be daunting but often is rewarding. The idea for two of my most-read stories — “The best and worst classes to take at UNC” and “Is grad school for you?” — simply came from things I was wondering myself.

The best feeling as a writer is someone reading your work and telling you how much they appreciate it. For me, it is reaffirming that I am not the only one who could benefit from more information on a topic. I love that with College Town, I can research a topic I curious about or write a post about my own experience, and both are encouraged.
