Hello, I’m Mauri Pollard

I’m a poet, a football fanatic, a believer in paper books, and a wannabe Parisian. And I’m an English Major.

Throughout my whole I have had passion for words. Whether it was writing them or reading them, words have always seemed like a genre of music to me. I love poetry, reading and also writing, and my favorite poet is Sylvia Plath. Another passion of mine is the language of French, and along with it, the city of Paris. Although I have never been, I feel like I belong there and am planning on going on a study abroad to Paris sometime in the next few years. I know everything there is to know about Harry Potter and The Great Gatsby is one of the best books ever written. I love my friends, family, football, and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

One of my favorite stories is F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby.

Bonjour, I’m Emma Jarvis!

I’m a Frenchie, social media addict, treat enthusiast, die-hard Arizonian and wanna-be Southerner, and I’m an English Major

I love Paris. And that’s an understatement.

Like most English majors, I’ve always been addicted to reading. It was my junior year AP English teacher, Ms. Creaser, who cemented my need to be an English Major. I had never been in a class as intellectually stimulating as that class, and as I figured out intense life questions through writing, I knew there was no other option for me in college. I’ve been disillusioned from time to time with the major, wondering if I would enjoy advertising or graphic design more, but at the end of the day, I sit in Dr. Cutchins‘s class and puzzle over Henry James, or listen to Dr. Hall rant as the class laughs, and I know I’ve picked the right major.

One of my favorite books is Henry James’s Daisy Miller.
