Artist’s Statement

Throughout high school, I always thought writing a paper was my weakest ability. Being enrolled in Professor Mary’s Rhet 105 class helped me improve my writing. Being in this class I have learned the true purpose of writing and the correct way to write a paper. I now write to engage with my readers and inform them with information they have not heard of before. I write to express myself in a way I cannot express myself in person; I write with emotion. I express myself through endless papers, critical analysis, and portfolio quizzes assigned. Before I begin my writing, I think about the topic of my paper and what I want my readers to know. It’s an essential to have excellent, supporting evidence to make my statements strong. I typically get my sources from reliable online websites such as The Washington Post, and from the University of Illinois’s library. Once I have all my information gathered is when the magic happens.
