Neele Thom, Peer Consultant

As a kid, I used to sit by a basket of fruit in our living room and categorize them by color, shape, or whatever else I came up with. My sense of urgency for organization (as well as the pride I felt explaining my work to my confused parents) is what I believe led me to find a passion for writing.

Although I am currently pursuing a STEM degree, I am excited by all opportunities to learn and to share my own knowledge. I approach writing the same way I approached my fruit bowl – lots of diligent planning. I spend a lot of time intensely organizing ideas and details, this generates a solid understanding for my topic which translates as enthusiasm in my writing.

I love to collaborate with students in a way that not only helps them to further develop the piece they’re working on, but also encourages them to find genuine enthusiasm for their topic and for writing as a whole.

Outside of the WaCC I enjoy long distance running, as well as reading and watching documentaries. These hobbies stem directly from my drive to improve myself and strengthen my mind.

I believe writing is something that anyone can feel confident with and even enjoy, it just takes some time, patience and practice to organize all of the fruit in your basket.
