Hello, my name is Jessi Hargett and I am a junior at Bob Jones University. My home state is North Carolina, and I love being a Southerner. My major is English education, and I am looking forward to teaching either middle school or high school students in the future. I'm also interested in teaching ESL learners and pursuing a master's degree in speech therapy.
I enjoy writing, reading, playing softball and basketball, watching old black and white movies, and listening to old-time radio shows. Hiking is another hobby I want to start picking up.
I have been writing for The Collegian for a year and a half. I want to use this experience in a future school setting to challenge my students in their writing ability and show them how they can use writing in the real world.
