Aneisha Green ’20
Writing Offers Outlet for Creative Expression
Growing up, Aneisha Green ’20 says her favorite thing to do was to write.
“At 8 years old I was typing multiple-paged stories with the dreams of potentially becoming published,” she says.
Today, she is pursuing her passion as an English major with a minor in creative writing.
Creative writing has opened up a door to the freedom of creative expression.
“Some of my favorite memories as a student include times in Dr. Horton’s class where he simply gave us a lucid prompt and the freedom to expound upon it. It was in these instances that my creativity flourished and I began to hone my gift even more.”
Green, who plans to pursue a master’s degree in education, says the writing courses she has taken have enabled her to develop the ability to write in various formats beside prose.
“Creative writing has opened up a door to the freedom of creative expression and has challenged me as well,” she says. “Instead of writing with comfortability in mind, I now feel the pressure to go above my former threshold and to raise the bar.”
