Charlotte, NC

English Writing major and History minor

For Riley, writing is like "completing a middle school science fair project the morning of. I wait till the last minute for inspiration to strike, and then go wild coming up with ideas, trying to make the abstract come to life, making adjustments on the fly. Maybe I'll get my mom's opinion (reaching out to others for a second set of eyes) on a certain aspect, and then I finish it in an exhausted stupor, accompanied by that lovely buzzing feeling of accomplishment."
