Congratulations to our Spring 2021 graduate, Destiny Hall, who was admitted into Columbia University’s MFA program!
Destiny reflects on her time in the Writing Arts program: "I think that one of the most valuable aspects of the Writing Arts program is the connections that I've made. Before applying to graduate school I was really lucky and privileged to have professors willing to invest their time and explain the graduation application process to me. I'm a first-generation college student so this information was invaluable. I know that without my professors' constant commitment to my education and professional goals I wouldn't have been able to succeed in applying to graduate school. Although I graduate in less than a week I can't believe that I'm graduating from college much less pursuing a degree from an Ivy League University. I know it's cliche but, I'm really excited for everything that's coming my way. It's not every day that your dreams come true and I'm very eager to find a new dream."
Congrats, Destiny! Our department was so lucky to watch you flourish!
