KU grad student, pursuing PhD in Architecture Design and Planning. Member of KU Writing Center Graduate Writing Group.

"My target in life is to be a researcher. I need to be confident in my ideas and in my writing, to be able to transfer that knowledge to my students. To be a professor, you must be a good researcher, but also a good writer as well. That is absolutely important. My focus is on education and building. So, what I am doing there is developing and applying design methodology in educational spaces. In my country, we don’t have this field of research though. I want to take this knowledge back to my country and spread that knowledge to my students. I am not very confident in my writing though. I believe the concept is clear in my mind, but I need to figure out how to explain that—how to transfer that idea onto paper. I see the Writing Center as a go-to place for me. Sometimes I feel I can speak to them and they can give ideas or hints on how to write my ideas on paper, to make them clear when they’re written down. I make an appointment every week and I’m part of a writing group. As a PhD student, we are isolated in our offices. You can find a space there at the Writing Center though to share your ideas, speak to others, and make friends."
