Elena Swan

Hi! My name is Elena Swan and I am a senior at the University of Kansas. Due to participating in concurrent enrollment in high school and taking summer classes, I will be graduating this fall, a semester earlier than planned. I will have my Bachelor’s Degree in Creative Writing with a minor in Psychology. As of now, I am a part-time cashier at Dillons with experience in food service and retail. However, I want to join a writing career so I will seek out experience in that area through internships and/or volunteering. I am also learning computer skills like basic programming and web design. I am from Topeka, KS, but have lived in Lawrence for the past four years. In my free time, I like to write, draw, play video games, and listen to audiobooks.
