Meet Monica

Monica is a senior planning to graduate in May 2023. She is majoring in English (Professional and Public Writing) with a minor in Communication Studies. She has been on the staff of genesis since Fall 2021. Her favorite genesis issue is from Spring 2022, because of the celebration of the 50 year anniversary of genesis contained there.  

While she has a stack of six or so books she is trying to read at any given time, her favorite book is The Lord of the Rings. Based on that, the fictional place she would most like to go to is the Shire from Middle-earth. In fact, one of her bucket list items is taking a trip to New Zealand to visit the site where the Shire was filmed for the LOTR films. One of her greatest life achievements thus far was being called a “library saint” by a patron she helped at the library where she works.  

She hopes to continue doing editorial work after graduation. For now, on any given day, she can probably be found drinking a lot of tea or coffee and wearing clothing that is at least 60% blue.
