University of Northern Iowa Dept. of English Language and Literature Myrtle Telleen Collins "Spirit of Life" Award for student writing, 2008
There are two great loves in my life: running and literature. Both allow me to embrace life to the fullest, and I believe both hold a power that helps me be a better person and connect with the generations of humanity who have walked this earth before us.
