Dear Malcolm, Writing is beautiful. Its grown to be a passion of mine through the years because I was an avid reader as a child. Having Nigerian parents meant that I spent my Saturday afternoons at the library and not at the mall with friends. Ive always found myself to be creative when it comes to writing. I wrote my first song by the time I was 10or possibly even before. Singing is another big passion of mine. After writing songs came writing scripts for movie scripts that I dreamed would come into fruition sometime during my adulthood. When I got to high school and enrolled in our theatre program, I then began to write monologues and more scripts and speeches for debate and forensics. Now that I am a college student, I have moved up. I currently have a job on campus and of course one of the titles under my position is a writer for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. I look forward to all that I will experience within this course throughout this semester. I seem to have an awesome professor that brings vibrance into a dimly lit room at the ungodly hour of 8 am. I originally wrote part of this paper during our first class assignment for Writing is.. and then I realized that writing is such a big part of who I am, I had to include it in this blurb about myself. Im a big dreamer as you may have been able to see but I am also a very hard-worker that is willing to exert some labor into my goals. I was never the smartest kid for example, but Ive always been able to work hard for good grades. I graduated high school as President of National Honor Society. There is a plethora of things that I wish to accomplish in my future and I believe that because I am such a unique individual that most will find it hard to forget about me thus making it that much easier to succeed. Yes.I did just use the word plethora and its not because its an intelligent sounding SAT word. I actually have a rather wide vocabulary and consider myself a wordsmith on several occasions. Now that you know a little bit about me, Id like to share a little bit about what I come from. I am the second oldest child out of four children in our family of 6. Both of my parents abandoned Nigeria to pursue college educations and begin a family here in the States and somehow I fell into the mix some years later. I have an older brother named Dumebi and two younger: Ijem, my baby sister and Zimuzo, my baby brother. Like myself, my siblings all have unique Africana names also. My siblings and I are all born and raised, native Charlotteans and I love my city. UNC Charlotte isnt the first place I thought I would end up but I made the best decision for myself and Ive had a blast thus far. Something I told myself in the wake of the new year was that I would be the most positive individual I knew how to be. I have a tendency of becoming easily frustrated when I see myself failing which in turn leads me to appear pessimistic. Ive always seemed to be popular and liked as I grew into myself and I want those reasons to be apparent to people I come across including

you. With my new goal of positivity in mind, I will go out of my way to make this semester worthwhile. Eventually you will discover what a clown and goofball I am and how much I love making people laugh as well as laughing at things. I have a very crazy laugh that may startle you initially. I hope that my bad history of tending to fall asleep with the drop of a dime like a bear in hibernation doesnt follow me. If so, with all the positivity Ive conjured up in the new year, Ill be screwed.

Hi Somgolie, Thanks for your fine letter introducing yourself. I enjoyed reading it and getting to know you a bit. I love your resolve to be so positive this semester - don't let the tough days get you down. No one can be positive all the time, right? Also, don't worry if you fall asleep. It happens, sometimes. I'm thrilled to know a bit about your heritage and love your siblings' names! I'm glad you're in my class. We'll have fun this semester and also get some good work done. Malcolm
