As a writer for BYU’s College of Humanities, I wrote two to three articles per week that were published on the college’s website. I also wrote several profiles that were featured in Humanities magazine and designed web pages. I had the opportunity to talk to a variety of people and to listen to their incredible stories and contributions to the college and to the world while in this position. Below is a selection of stories I wrote while in this position.
