Introducing our new team member
Corinne is a BA at Hillsdale College, and her declared major is American Studies with a projected minor in Journalism. Although these choices sound informed and thoughtful on Corinne's part, what really happened is that a really cool, successful senior did the same major and minor and went on to do really cool, successful things. So even though Corinne doesn't know what she will do with these life choices, she does know one thing: her dream is to become as great as the classical authors.
While growing up, Corinne battled a severe condition that afflicted her for many years: she could not see because her eyes were glued permanently to books. This caused her to be the girl at recess who hid in the shade to read from her pile of library books, and her occasional companion was the library lady. One day, Corinne finally found she could look up, and after the initial shock she realized that her college applications would need to say more than "loves to read". Her solution: to become involved in as many things as possible.
As a result, Corinne came to the realization that she also enjoys creative writing, drawing or painting, traveling, playing tennis, and spending inappropriate amounts of time thinking about the money it would take to adopt all the unclaimed dogs at the animal shelter. In the near future, she hopes to spend less time thinking about those dogs and more time writing.
Come get to know a bit more about Corinne with an Interview (Part 1)
- Describe yourself in 50 words or less.
- I am an enthusiastic, creative, stubborn whirlwind of emotion that can be a bit of a people-pleaser. There are definitely more things I like than dislike, so I’ll name what I absolutely can’t stand: raspberries, country music, and this Arizona heat.2. What do you love most in the world?I love my faith most in the world, and I love to use my God-given abilities to help or better other’s lives.3. What do you fear most?I actually have the craziest fear--as much as I love to travel and explore, I am deathly afraid of the ocean!4. What is your largest unfulfilled dream, and what are you doing to reach it?My largest unfulfilled dream is becoming a widely acclaimed author of fiction. A genre has yet to be chosen, but I have a wide range of interests. I am currently a student-athlete at a liberal arts school, and I commit myself to juggling my studies, competition, and a few odd jobs. Hopefully, all of this will result in the awesome author I hope to be one day: a woman who will inspire and excite readers with her work and personality.5. What is the hardest thing you've ever done?
The hardest thing I’ve ever done, in my short and young life (what is hardship?) was to make the choice to depledge from my sorority. In a small school, choices like these seem near impossible to make, but I knew it wasn’t the right place for me. It proved to be a valuable lesson in listening to my mother and knowing what my true values are.
