Welcome to my e-portfolio!
Amal Shukr/Wayne State University
I am Amal Shukr, an English major at Wayne State University and honors student at the Irvin D. Reid Honors College. This e-portfolio entails both my academic and personal journey through my time at Wayne State and the Honors College.
Education has always been a significant part of my life. I have always cherished learning and I naturally crave knowledge in all of its forms. For this reason, I have been a devout reader since I learned the fine art. Reading gives me a sense of perfect serenity and it is my favorite hobby, the sight of books alone puts me at ease. One of my favorite writers is Charles Bukowski, his work never ceases to inspire and comfort me. I, too, enjoy writing; most of my writing stems from my constant journaling (and essay writing), although I do delve into poetry and occasionally write short stories. It makes perfect sense, then, that I chose (rather easily) to major in English.
Upon graduation, I hope to enter an accredited law school and fulfill my dream of becoming an attorney for troubled female youth. Further down the road, I hope to simultaneously work as a professor in legal education (or English!), fulfilling my other dream of becoming a teacher.
Outside of academia and my passion for reading and writing, I enjoy trying new foods, exercising, going to the movies, skiing, and calligraphy.
