College Student. English Major. Writer. Entrepreneur. Supervisor.

These are just a few of the words I use to describe myself. I am the kind of person who has a hard time defining myself because I like to do so many different things. That’s what you’ll find here on Modern Laine, many different posts about many different things.

From my keywords I’ve shared that I am a college student, specifically a senior at College of Charleston where I am studying English, Creative Writing,  Communication and Film Studies. I love being an English major, even if it means reading about 200 pages a week. Being an English major has taught me so many useful skills and increased my love for the written word. As well as being an English major, I have a concentration in Creative Writing which keeps me writing fiction and I get class credit for it. It’s a brilliant thing! Finally, I have a minor in Communication, which helps with my love for social media.

Besides being a student, I am also the birthday supervisor at a local business and I have my own business as a virtual and administrative assistant. It can be difficult to run my own business, manage my department at work and be a student, but I like the challenge and that keeps me going.


ABOUT MODERN LAINE
