Hello, University of Idaho! I am excited to serve as the editor of the Women’s Center Blog while beginning my second year as a master’s student in the Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL) program this semester. I enjoy learning about different world cultures, languages, and traditions as well as being involved on campus and in the community. After graduation, I would like to teach abroad. I studied abroad in Cuba and Puerto Rico during my undergrad, which allowed me to experience living in other cultures. I graduated in 2017 with a BA in Spanish, Latin American Studies, and Public Relations. In my free time, I like to read, study religions, dance, and visit cultural festivals.
Hello! My name is Kate Ringer, and I am a senior here at the University of Idaho, studying English Education and Psychology. My biggest passion is sex education, and I also enjoy rock climbing, reading, backpacking, and writing in my journal. I’m just a talkative, opinionated, adventurous spirit along for the ride in this crazy life.
As a junior majoring in Journalism with a minor in Creative Writing at the University of Idaho, my passions include—but aren’t limited to—music writing, philosophical reading, photography, DJ-ing, record collecting, and activism involvement. Hailing from Boise, Moscow is my intermittent home until the towns of London or Prague accept my opportunistic outlook and sassy sense of humor. My ultimate goal is to provide a helping amplification for those voices not loud enough to be heard.
Que lo Que! I am a non-traditional freshman majoring in Journalism. As a navy brat, I have lived in many different places in the States, but I come from Mexican and Dominican parents. I spent the past two years in Mexico traveling and volunteering, mainly at the Guanajuato at Convento del Buen Pastor’s foster home for girls and women’s shelter. My passions include Catholicism, women’s issues in health, salsa dancing, and laughing at inappropriate times. I’m still deciding if I want to be a journalist for an online newspaper, a nun, or both.
I am a third-year English student at the University of Idaho, with an emphasis in Creative Writing. I am an active feminist and volunteer and am passionate about my work in social action. In my free time, I like to take naps with my cat, write poetry, go on hikes, and spend time with my friends. After I graduate, I plan on getting my MFA and publishing my own book of poems.
Hello, UI! This is my last year double-majoring in Literature and Creative Writing and I’m very excited to be working with the Women’s Center. I’ve lived in Idaho for the last eight years or so, Washington before that, and California before that. I love meeting the variety of people we have here at U-Idaho, and I think the Women’s Center is one of the key offices in fostering that diversity. I love taking photographs, singing in the car, and naturally, reading and writing. I hope to get my foot in various doors and eventually be a published author. But as Steven King has said, “Life isn’t a support-system for art. It’s the other way around.” Ultimately when I write, I hope that someone out there will find it relatable, and know that they aren’t alone. I’ve often found that kindred spirits and brain friends are a lot closer than you might think.
