About Me: My story begins in Wichita, KS, where I was born and raised in a family with no notions of all that college might offer me. When I came to KU, I didn’t have much of an idea about where I was going, I only knew that I wanted to be a writer, to use my voice to make some kind of difference. McNair has had a major impact on the direction that this dream is taking me. Rather than viewing my education as a fast route to a high-paying job, I now hope to join the research world of anthropological fieldwork, studying and encouraging discussion of the issues facing women in today’s world.
