Meet the Fellows

AfiaWriting FellowAfia A

If freshmen year has taught me one thing: always be yourself. My time here at Carthage has been the most enlightening experience. I came here nervous, but now I’m content with myself. As a member of French Club and Carthage Wave, I am always immersing myself in music or culture.

Allison is a Writing Center Fellow.Writing FellowLeadership Team Staff Meeting CoordinatorAllie O

Hello! I am a Spanish and Elementary Education major looking forward to teaching dual language elementary one day! I love to travel, write, exercise, and spend time with my friends and family. I would be more than happy to help you in the Writing Center and hope to see you there!

Bethany is a Writing Center Fellow.Writing Fellow BadgeBethany F

My name is Bethany and I’m double majoring in Environmental Science and Political Science. I’m a studious person, so I spend most of my time doing homework, but when I’m not doing homework I like spending time with my friends or watching Netflix. I have always been a very passionate person, and reading and writing have been important components in helping me express that passion. I’m always working to learn how to be a better writer, and over the past few years, I have developed a strong appreciation for the beauty of the writing process. As a writing tutor, I hope to help others write papers that they can be proud of.

Brooke is a Writing Center Fellow.Senior Fellow BadgeLeadership Team New Fellow Training CoordinatorBrooke W

I am a Classical Archaeology major with a double minor in Latin and G.I.S. When I am not drinking coffee, listening to music, or reading a book, you will usually find me translating some Latin or ancient Greek in the library. If you are in need of random facts about the past, look no further!

Catherine is a Writing Center Fellow.Writing Fellow BadgeCatherine D

Hi, my name is Catherine and I was born and raised in Appleton, Wisconsin. I am studying psychology and criminal justice. When I am not in the Writing Center I enjoy walking down by the lake and drinking coffee—catch me in Starbucks most days. I am a self-proclaimed mac and cheese connoisseur. My favorite type of writing is creative writing, even though I find it the most difficult to craft. My favorite book is Storm and Silence by Rob Thier but I have also read every Sarah J. Maas book ever written. I am so excited to be able to assist all writers with their work, especially Western Heritage papers.

ChloeAdvanced Fellow BadgeChloe G

My name is Chloe, and I am a Pre-Med Neuroscience Major, minoring in Psychology here at Carthage. Even though I am a science major, I have always loved reading and writing creative works, and even found joy when constructing various papers for Western Heritage! Outside of school I love to lift weights and play volleyball, as well as travel (I have already checked Peru and Honduras off my list) and drink inhuman amounts of iced coffee - regardless of the temperature. After my time here at Carthage, I hope to attend Medical School, and pursue a career as a trauma surgeon.

Heyo! You’ve probably seen me sitting in Straz. I am majoring in psychology. I commute from South Milwaukee, Wisconsin (My hometown). As a commuter, it’s a bit hard to get to know everyone, but I am involved in various organizations on campus such as My Brother’s Keeper, Japanese Club, BSU, and more. In my free time, I like learning new things, hanging with friends and family, and gaming. Hope to see you around!

Morgan is a Writing Center Fellow.Writing Fellow BadgeMorgan T

Hello! I am a Music Education and Vocal Performance Major with a French Minor. I try to do a little bit of everything on campus so that leaves me pretty busy, but I love to devote my time to each and every thing I am involved in! From Tower RA to Neil-Futurist and member of Carthage Choir, I am also the only French Tutor on campus so feel free to bring in your French papers! If I do not have mountains of homework to sift through, you can find me reading in my hammock down by the lake!

Rebecca EAdvanced Fellow BadgeRebecca E

Hello!  I am majoring in English and Great Ideas. Rainy days, lighthouses, and lavender tea are some of my favorite things. I enjoy curling up with a good book, and I have an ever-growing love of writing poetry. In addition to writing, I like to play my flute and take the train to Chicago on the weekends. I love being a resource for students here at Carthage, and I want to help you wherever you are in the writing process. Homeric epics are my favorite, so I am happy to assist with all things The Odyssey and Western Heritage!

River FWriting Fellow BadgeRiver F

Hi! I’m currently a sophomore, double majoring in English and Communications. My current goals are to finish a novel and get into publishing once I graduate. I love to write creatively, play video games, and spend time with my friends. Writing is one of my greatest passions and I look forward to helping other students with their papers.

Rylie is a Writing Center Fellow.Writing Fellow BadgeRylie M

Hello, my name is Rylie. I am a Biology and Chemistry Major, though I am considering switching to a History Major. I love to read and write, though I suppose that may seem obvious considering where I now work. While I love all genres of books, I’m currently on a big fantasy kick, with my all-time favorite series being the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. Besides reading and writing, however, I love all types of art (though most often I dabble in watercolor and jewelry making) and going for nice long walks outside where I can think. I’ve taken and plan to take a good mix of science and humanities courses, one of my favorites so far has been my Western Heritage classes. I hope one day to either become a teacher or to work with animals.

SynclaireSenior Fellow BadgeLeadership Team New Fellow Training CoordinatorSynclaire L

Hello! I am an English and Communications double major with a minor in Theater. I love reading and books so my hope is to one day become an editor at a publishing company. On campus, I am also involved in CAB, Sigma Tau Delta, and Model UN. I just spent that past semester in London and traveled all over Europe! When I’m not working or freaking out over my thesis, I enjoy Netflix, reading, hanging out with friends, and playing sports!

Zoe is a Writing Center fellow.Advanced Fellow BadgeLeadership Team Workshop and Class Visit CoordinatorZoe H

Hello! I’m majoring in economics with minors in math and Asian studies. My passion for writing mostly stems from my love of reading and my favorite genres are fantasy and science fiction. I’d be happy to work with you on any paper or piece of writing you may need help with!

    • You can’t hide here — not with only 17 other students in the classroom with you. That’s going to be rough some mornings. But later, when you’re able to argue your point of view thoughtfully, express your opinions succinctly, and meet challenges head-on, without fear … Yep, you’ll thank us.
