    Sophia Gimm

    My name is Sophia Gimm, I’m 19 years old, and I’m majoring in English with an emphasis in creative writing. I am super interested in film and television, and I hope to be a screenwriter in the future. In my free time, I love to draw and paint, listen to music, or dabble in some online shopping. I am so excited to be working in the Writing Center, and I hope to offer some help in your classes! 

  • Don Scalia

    Don Scalia

    My name is Don Scalia. I’m a Marine Biology Major with a minor in Creative Writing. I love to read and write and take huge inspiration from my home in Mississippi. Some of my favorite books include The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri, Killing Commendatore by Haruki Murakami, and Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides. My challenge to myself is to read more, so I’m currently attempting to read one book a week. Here's a picture of me seeing my favorite group, NCT 127, in concert.

  • AJ Schultz

    AJ Schultz

    Howdy! I’m AJ, I’m 18 years old, and I’m an English major with an emphasis in Creative Writing. I hail from Anchorage, and this is my first year in the bustling metropolis of Juneau! I love all forms of writing, from prose and poetry to TV, film, and music. When I’m not doing my jobs or attending classes, you can find me wandering around Auke Lake and Auke Bay (or anywhere on the trails around campus) or working on personal projects in Egan and Mourant. I’d love to be a screenwriter one day, and my dream goal (if the stars align) is to write for the best work of ongoing fiction of all time, Doctor Who.

    Ian Jensen

    My name is Ian Jenson. I am pursuing a degree in English literature with a minor in history. It’s been my dream to be a teacher since I was in middle school. The classroom environment is one that I have always felt comfortable in, and I want to offer my students the same opportunities that were given to me in rural Alaska. I love spending time outdoors, listening to and playing music, and reading. My favorite books are the Lord of the Rings series by Tolkien, and TheCount of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas. I look forward to seeing you in the Writing Center!

    Madelynne Brehmer

    Hello! I'm from Fairbanks, Alaska, studying to receive both a major in Outdoor Studies and a minor in English! I love being outside, wearing yellow, summer or ice fishing, and watching old (or well-written) movies. My favorites include "Goonies," "Everything Everywhere All At Once," "Knives Out," and Disney's "Robin Hood." I enjoy all types of writing and have taken courses with analytical and creative emphases. I hope to publish my own work someday or write compelling papers for whatever career I end up in! I love tackling a good paper and strengthening the ideas of students at any stage of the writing process. I believe all ideas are worth writing an essay for, so I hope to see you in the Writing Center soon!
