Hooray to Katia, who has been accepted to UCLA, UC-Berkeley, UC-Santa Barbara, UC-Davis and Loyola Marymount University. She will be attending UCLA.
Katia’s essays are full of color and vivid images. Her writing helps the reader see, hear, taste, touch and smell whatever she is describing. She is very particular in her word choice to convey exactly the right details and the result is a piece that is a joy to read.
Best wishes to you, Katia. I am certain you will do well because you work hard in whatever you do. As your writing teacher, it has been heartening to work with someone who cares so much about getting the words exactly right.
Have a wonderful experience at UCLA. I know you will love it there. Big hugs, my dear.
