During school, I was taught the basic information with writing such as starting with an introduction, moving onto the body paragraphs, and finishing off with a conclusion. However, in general, writing is not particularly my strongest subject. My high school experience with writing was good at times because my class and I wrote a whole lot of essays, and I got more familiar with the different formats and styles. While spending my next four years at Florida A&M University I desire to obtain more information and spend more time writing so I will be able to get better.

As I began the journey of returning to school, one of my biggest fears, was the writing aspect in the classes. The fear of reading and writing has never been a strong quality; however, I have never able to successfully be creative in the way I learn.

Lit Comp Honors has been a brand-new experience for me.
