I am currently a sophomore at Davidson College, a liberal arts school near Charlotte, North Carolina. I am studying towards a Bachelor of Arts in political science and French & Francophone Studies. However, my primary interest is in civil discourse.
I am an avid musician, participating in two different music groups on campus, Davidson Androgyny A Capella and Vocal Performance with the Davidson College Music Department, in addition to weekly Jazz Saxophone lessons. With these organizations and lessons I am able to regularly perform in front of live audiences ranging in sizefrom a dozen people to as many as several hundred. On average I spend 6 to 7 hours a week rehearsing for these performances.
For many years I have had an interest in communication, and recently was hired to be a Speaking Center at Davidson College's Center for Teaching and Learning. Through this resource I am connected with a myriad of communication-oriented opportunities on campus, which I use to further my interest in civil discourse.
Davidson College is loosely affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (USA), of which I am a member. At present my membership is active with Davidson College Presbyterian Church (DCPC). At DCPC I am part of the Fellowship Committee and work as an usher once a month. Through this participation I am able to keep in touch with my faith through my college career.
Thank you! I'll get back to you as soon as I can!
