About khmcdu11

Hello! My name is Kara McDuffee I am currently a junior at St. Lawrence University. I'm double majoring in English Creative Writing and PCA, with a focus in Communications and Rhetoric Studies. Over my time here at SLU, I've taken a variety of writing classes and loved them all. So far, Creative Non-fiction has been my personal favorite, which is why I'm excited to be taking this Literary Journalism class. I also participate in a handful of other clubs and activities on campus, including the Women's Basketball team, Dance Ensemble, the Student Athletic Advisory Committee, and the Liberty Partnership Program.
