A writer in the making
Organized by: cassandra cavazos
I started at the University of Houston- Downtown in the fall of 2013 after transferring from another university. I had my setbacks, I had been out of school for two years and after throwing myself back into it the academic lifestyle I was initially overwhelmed. I ended up putting in mediocre work and failed and because of this I was put on probation for one semester. That was the semester that I truly thrived at the school and I came to love it. I received a 3.0 for the semester and made it in for an internship at the school student run magazine. However, even though I brought up my gpa my financial aid was still revoked and I am now in the process of appeals. In the mean time I need a way to pay for school so that I can go on to get my degree in English with a concentration in creative writing and a minor in film studies. I am hoping that by the end of this semester I will have written a collection of short stories and poems. I already have one cycle of poems and I hope to continue under academic advisement.
