The Life of an English Major

“What does an English major actually do?”

I’ve heard this question countless times, and honestly my answer is still evolving. I chose this major because I love to read and write. And I still do.

Who would have thought my love for literature would have influenced my life in such an overwhelming way?

I transformed my obsession with finding just the right words into a career (profession, livelihood, vocation?). First as a Princeton English major, then as an attorney, now as a writer and part time college essay and English tutor, I delight in (savor, relish?) writing and helping others become successful writers.
