PERSONAL STATEMENT

I’m a 19 year old student studying English and Painting at Drake University. I love everything that
has to do with literature, analyzing text, novel research, visual development, illustration, digital art,
and I feel a true devotion for hand-made creations.

I have two years of experience working as a sales associate for Family Video, and one year of
experience working closely with other students as an editor of my school’s art and literary
magazine. I’m ready for a challenge, and I have the ability to learn new things quickly and efficiently!

I love working with people, especially if they have the same passion I have for their job.
