On Wednesday, April 6, University Libraries was proud to host nine undergraduate students as they read aloud their personal essays in a virtual event. The event was the sixth installment of Dr. Rita Nezami’s Personal Essay Student Reading Series.
The nine students, listed below with their essay titles, wrote their essays as part of their work in either a WRT 102 or WRT 303 course. They read personal essays on topics including coping with illness, being determined to practice the piano, and discovering one’s own understanding of love and friendship. The richness of their lived realities was expressed through essays that showcased the students’ thoughtful observations, attention to detail, and use of vivid imagery.
It was a time to listen to, connect with, learn from, and empower one another through the art of storytelling.
