    Spotlight on Reading and Writing: Jazmine Wells

    The TODAY’s Spotlight on Reading/Writing features CSU-Pueblo faculty, staff and students sharing their reading and writing experiences. The column is co-sponsored by the English and Foreign Languages Department and the English Club. This week’s feature highlights student Jazmine Wells.

    Jazmine Wells

    Name/department/educational background: Jazmine Wells, English major, Spanish minor, sophomore

    What has been your greatest success in writing? (Personal writing, collaborative writing, completing a project or book, etc.): My greatest success in writing was when my essay on female comic book characters won second place in an academic writing contest.

    What do you struggle with in writing and how do you tackle that challenge? I struggle a lot with writing to different audiences, specifically my teachers. To fix this problem I meet with them individually and ask them what they are looking for.

    What’s your favorite book of all time? Author? “Invisible Monsters” by Chuck Palahniuk

    What are you currently reading? Author? I am currently reading “What We Talk About When We Talk About Love” by Raymond Carver

    What’s your favorite guilty reading pleasure, an easy, “beach” read? Bottle caps. Some drinks like “Sobe” bottles have words in them and I like to collect them and read them.

    Do you have a favorite word or quotation and who is the author? “But smiles and tears are so alike with me: they are neither of them confined to any particular feelings: I often cry when I am happy, and smile when I am sad.” –Anne Bronte
