Salome Seifu, Peer Consultant

Major: Englishmoi.jpg

I first realized something was wrong with me when I found myself genuinely enjoying Hamlet in high school. Hamlet would say something like, “To die, to sleep—To sleep, perchance to dream—ay, there's the rub / For in this sleep of death what dreams may come...” and I’d be like, “Are you kidding me?” Fast forward a few years, and I am now majoring in English Literature. Hamlet may not have been the catalyst for my decision to pursue the major, but it has proven to be at least one manifestation of my appreciation for the written word.

As a peer consultant at the UWB Writing and Communication center, it’s probably a given that I love to write. I believe this passion translates well when helping those who seek guidance with their own work, and I’ll do my absolute best to answer students’ questions and work with them to produce a piece of writing that they can truly be proud of. I’m patient, and I understand what it’s like to struggle with writing projects, as I’ve been in the same position before. I want to help people overcome any of the hurdles that they may face when it comes to writing so that they can move forward as more confident, secure writers.
