[My whole life story to come; watch this space!]
"Hello everybody! My name is Evalyn Harper and I'm super excited to be joining the English Society officers as a member of the Marketing and Outreach Team! Next semester I'll be starting my second year at the University of Iowa studying English and creative writing on a publishing track. I'm an avid reader/writer of fiction and I'mparticularly interested in creating inclusive storytelling for children and teens. Outside of my literary pursuits, I've been known to enjoy video editing, attempting to play the ukulele, and any and all things Disney.
