I decided to trade the dry, mountainous city of Highland (in the state of Utah in the USA) for the highlands of Scotland to study publishing. I studied Linguistics with a minor in editing for my undergraduate degree at Brigham Young University. I have always had a love for language and books. The UK is a beautiful place to live and study which played a large part in my decision to study at Stirling. My editing experience has been in editorial thus far, but there are many facets of publishing that I enjoy and I am willing to try different sectors until I find what I really like. I will be an editorial intern for Floris Books in Edinburgh this semester–for which I am very excited! Children’s publishing is what I would like to go into eventually. My love for children’s books stems from reading to my little sisters and brother since they were very young. I have four sisters and a brother who are all younger than me–the youngest is eight years old. I love music and I play the harp and the piano. Some of my favorite books are Cry the Beloved Country, The Hunger Games, The Giver, The House of the Scorpion, The Kite Runner, The Odyssey, and pretty much anything by Emily Dickinson, Ray Bradbury, and Edgar Allen Poe.
