What a privilege to have had your writing shared with me! You have a unique gift for finding the depth and nuance of quotidian moments in queer life, and those of us able to read your writing learn more about ourselves, about gender, about intimacy, because of it. I can’t wait to see where your future takes you – and the many publications that are lucky enough to book you for their pages.” - Michael Dango</p></em><div class="m-3 clearfix"><a href="/commencement/senior-profiles/index.php" class="d-inline-block pull-right"><i class="fa fa-refresh fa-2x"/></a></div></div></div></div>
