I am a Business Administration major with a minor in Digital Studies, which is how you will find me here! This is my last semester and I am excited. Currently, I work at a CPA office as a bookkeeper. I’ve been doing that for 4 years. I moved up here from the village of Kinnakeet on Hatteras Island, NC. Let’s see… What else can I tell you all about me? Well, a couple hobbies of mine are writing and creating languages. I write and develop a fantasy role-play on a forum and I drag my friends and family into trying to learn my constructive language. The success of that is currently a work-in-progress. There is hope for one! But, don’t get me started on my conlang. I can talk a long time on that!
Anyway, that will be all about me for now. Thanks for reading!
