DISTILLING WONDERS INTO WORDS since TWO THOUSAND TEN
The Writingwolf aims to inspire through storytelling, to create a world without discrimination, freed from the clutches of poverty and pollution…
I am a student, a leader, and an advocate for change. I’m majoring in Mathematics at N.C. State University with minors in Political Science and Creative Writing. In addition to working as a university tutor, I serve as a resident mentor, secretary of the GLBT CommUnity Alliance, and director of visibility and communication for NCPIRG at N.C. State, an organization dedicated to promoting student activism and community involvement. My passions include writing and reading, and I aspire to become as influential as J.R.R. Tolkien and J.K. Rowling.
In 2005, I began working as a teacher’s aid (madrich in Hebrew) at my synagogue’s religious school, and in 2008 I began training to become a full teacher in 2009, the same year I attended the Alexander Muss High School in Israel and enrolled at Guilford Technical Community College. I was shoved into leadership and became president of the Gay-Straight Alliance, the first of many leadership roles that included student ambassador, secretary of Phi Theta Kappa, and Student Government Association president; I also graduated from the Student Leadership Institute in 2011 and received the President’s Medal in 2012. I began participating in NaNoWriMo in 2006, and from 2010 to 2012 I served as the Municipal Liaison for the Triad, North Carolina, region; I’ve completed the challenge for seven consecutive years.
My goals after N.C. State are to pursue graduate degrees in mathematics and teach at the college level to inspire tomorrow’s scientists and teachers. After a period spent serving as a representative of the people, I want to retire and spend the rest of my days writing the stories I have always yearned to write.
I strive to live with integrity and always keep my values close to me, and often they are the inspiration for what I write about: Diversity, service, learning and leadership, equality, and community.
I want to create a world where there is no longer discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity and expression (you could even say GLBT rights are my Fire and Fuel); and I want to do my part to end poverty and pollution, so our children can inherit a world worth living in.
I am, by nature, a dealer of words, and words are the most powerful drug known to humanity. – Rudyard Kipling
