During Longwood Seminar, we discussed methods for success in college and the First Year Reading Experience book, The Other Wes Moore. However, my biggest gain was getting to know and befriending other students in Honors.
After reading The Other Wes Moore and observing current events unfold on the news, I was made more aware of the large amount of white privilege in American society. The writing assignment I completed for a Longwood course, the essay required me to analyze racism’s effect on Wes Moore’s life. Since writing the essay, both my writing style and ability have transitioned to a more collegiate level.
