I am originally from San Antonio, Texas but my mom is in the military so that is what brought me to North Carolina. I am an English education major and plan to teach high school English once I graduate from UNCP. In addition to being a full-time student, I am the goalkeeper for the UNCP women’s soccer team, a member of SAAC, and an employee at American Eagle and Starbucks. One could say that I like to keep busy and have a lot on my plate.
I am from Seagrove, North Carolina and have lived there all my life. I am pursuing my B.S.W. in social work and intend to continue into the one-year master's program here at UNCP. Once I finish with school I plan to get a job working with children; however, I am not quite sure which direction I want to go with that yet.
I enjoy working in the Writing Center and hope I am of help to whoever comes in.
My name is Nestor B. Guerra and I am originally from Honduras, Central America. I am working on my MA in English; I think English is an interesting language because of William Shakespeare, and as a child I wanted to learn it. I graduated from MacMurray College in a small college town named Jacksonville, Illinois and majored in English/Spanish. So, se habla espanol. Since graduating from MacMurray College in 2008, I was in the U.S. Army and left in 2014. I currently reside in Aberdeen, NC with my wife.
I enjoy working in the Writing Center; it is a place where I can meet students who are majoring in different areas and it allows me to be exposed to many different ideas--very interesting stuff!
Hello, my name is Kelli. Originally from Clinton, North Carolina, I moved to Pembroke with my family in 2009. I fell in love with reading and writing at a very young age, which often caused my passion for English to spill over into my conversations with others. My self-proclaimed titles of "bookworm" and "people person" made my choice to major in English education a natural decision. I look forward to one day becoming a teacher and sharing my excitement for books, words, and learning with my students. Working in the Writing Center gives me a chance to not only gain experience in my field of study, but to also help students develop writing skills that will hopefully stay with them for a lifetime!
I was born in Boston, but raised in Las Vegas. I left the bright lights for the U.S. Army in 2006, and have lived in North Carolina since. I am studying zoology and preparing for a career in medicine.

I was born but not raised in North Carolina. The military took my family to Texas for a few years, then brought us right back to the Tar Heel state a couple of years ago. I attended Jack Britt High School in Fayeteville, NC. I am an English education major. I intend on furthering my education out of state after I graduate, but for now I plan on keeping my options open and accepting what life has in store for me.
I like working in the writing center because it allows me to help others with the one thing that I love and that is writing. It feels good to be able to help others enhance their writing skills and teach them something new. Sometimes I even learn something new about myself and my abilities through working with others.

My passions led me to my career choice and working in the writing center prepares me for that career. It is an amazing feeling to help others work through their challenges and to see the success they achieve in improving their written work.
