Sakshi Bhise, Peer Consultant

Major: Media and CommunicationsPicture of Sakshi

Have you ever tried to guess the end of a book before you finished it? Or imagined an alternative ending that you could have written for a novel? Well, if you have then you and I share the same passions for writing. From the age of 13, I started flipping through the pages of crime novels and was surrounded by authors like Agatha Christie and Arthur Conan Doyle. They were my heroes and I wondered how one can write the perfect murder story. The blood rush, the spine-chilling revelations, the unpredicted ending. All of this made me passionate about writing.  

Having said that, let me tell you a little about myself. I come from a family of engineers. Ironically, I struggled with mathematics. Finding my way through numbers stirred up my adoration for weaving words of my own. Writing became my safe haven; a space where I could cuddle up on my bed and believe that my words would create magic.  The simple practice of aligning one word after another gave me the confidence of transporting people to a world of my perspective. 

But again, assignments and personal statements are no fairytale. However, I can help you make writing an easier process. Whether you are struggling with writer’s block or having a hard time organizing your thoughts, I am just an appointment away. As a peer consultant, I believe we all have something to learn from one another. You teach me something, and I hope I can pass on my passion for writing on to you. Oh! Also, don’t be shocked if I overly quote Game of Thrones. That is another one of my passions.
