"My dad fostered my passion for writing. He would always write us letters as children. Whenever my dad read the newspaper, he would always write in the margins of stories. My dad was always the inspiration for my passion for writing, but my mom was the one who implemented correct grammar in my writing. I've always loved stories. In Church, I would always prepare children's stories to share.
I've always felt my experiences at the KU Writing Center have been fantastic! I would receive great feedback which made my writing feel very productive. After graduation, I plan to be an MD who specializes in infertility in women. Writing is important to empower women who are experiencing infertility, and to help educate them and introduce traditional and natural remedies. I would love to empower women in my home country, Kenya.
I think what makes a good writer is authenticity and interest in the topic. A good writer should always try to find a way to connect, give readers an opportunity to learn, and to allow the audience to dream along with you. I also think humor makes a great writer."
