Alexa D.Alexa D.
Undergrad Tutor, Junior
Psychology major, Spanish minor

I look forward to coming into work at the Ott Writing Center because I enjoy working with people on any type of writing and learning new things about what people may be writing about. I think it’s great that the writing center is not a place where a writer comes in and I sit there talking the whole time but rather it’s about working with a writer in a collaborative environment. As a psychology major, I think it’s always fun to work with writers on research papers and I also like literature papers.  I recently co-curated an art exhibition with peers from my Spanish class and have found a new interest in analyzing art and creative writing.
