This is my second Graduate Assistantship but my first in the department. I'm pursuing a Master's degree in Creative Writing and concentrating mainly on fiction. I liked to draw a lot growing up but didn't often read and never wrote. I began to truly read and trying to write about three years ago in an elective course I wasn't, at the time, eager about. I feel I've recently developed better writing habits but am confident I'll say that again three years from now.
My name is Brooke Bajon and I am an English major, class of 2013, with an avid appreciation and love for the arts. Painting is what strikes my interest the most and is what I enjoy doing in my free time. I have helped organize art shows in the past and have been fortunate enough to sell a few of my paintings. Making art is an important part of life, for it is an outlet for the soul to shine and a chance for it to dance through the artist's fingers and into being.
I am a second year graduate student in public history and the video editor for Manchac Review. Over the past several years I have freelanced as a filmmaker, serving clients ranging from local musicians to large corporations. I look forward to eventually utilizing my video experience for presenting history to a public audience. However, I still regard collaborating with friends and other filmmakers on artistic or satirical short films as a favorite activity.
