Hi! My name is Aydan and I am a senior Latin American Border Studies major with a minor in Spanish!

Growing up, my mom had one rule concerning bedtime: I could stay up as late as I wanted as long as I was reading. Being the night owl that I am, I would stay up until the wee hours of the morning reading graphic novels, chapter books, and short stories. I had an eclectic approach to reading as a child and therefore, grew up eager to read up on any subject that piqued my interest. The knowledge-obsessive habits of my childhood have not missed a beat, and I can proudly say that to this day, I am a raging bibliotaph. I enjoy collecting books about film and consider certain books in my collection such as the Euphoria boxset and the Ladybird screenplay, to be some of my most prized possessions. Aside from film and literature, I have spent the last few years diving into the world of law. This fall I will be attending law school in New York City and can not wait to see how my next journey plays out.

I am hoping to empower every writer I meet, regardless of major or background! Even though I worked in my high school’s writing center for two years, I was never 100% confident in my skills. One day, after reading an essay I had written my senior year English teacher, Mr. Watterson told me never to stop writing. After Mr. Watterson praised my capability as a writer, I realized that just one person could boost someone’s confidence as an author. As a consultant, I want to be that one person that helps others realize their potential and pushes them to achieve their goals!

Hope to see you soon!
