Year at UW: First

Hometown: Seattle, WA

About me: Hi! I'm Zoë, a first-year Honors student here at UW. I'm a native Seattleite, avid bookworm, dog lover, and enthusiastic Peer Mentor (though considering I've only attended UW for two quarters at UW, perhaps not yet as full of sage wisdom as I might wish.) I'm more than happy to answer questions regarding Honors or life at UW and in Seattle, and help with all things humanities-and-writing-related. I also have an off-campus job teaching martial arts classes, so I have information aplenty regarding balancing school and work, and about epic self-defense seminars. If you want to know the best spots in Seattle for delicious food, need tips on writing essays, or enjoy unsolicited book recommendations, I would love to chat. Feel free to send me an email any time!
