BA Candidate - Writing for Social Justice
Originally from Allentown, Pennsylvania, Keyli chose to come to Gallatin because she was excited about having the power to build a curriculum that would bring together her interests in literature, media, and publishing. Anne DeWitt’s First-Year Writing Seminar “Frankenstein and Revisions” and Christopher Trogan’s First-Year Research Seminar “Aesthetics in Context” opened her eyes to her interests in literature, writing, cultural analysis, and aesthetics. During her time at Gallatin, Keyli has written for Confluence, an online student platform for writing. She has served on the editorial boards of Confluence and the Literacy Review, Gallatin’s literary magazine. Keyli plans to continue her work as an editor for the Literacy Review. In the spring of 2017, Keyli studied abroad in NYU London as a Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship recipient. While there, she worked with the organization Reach the World, which was partnered with a high school ESL classroom in Brooklyn. Post-graduation, Keyli hopes to attend law school and to study immigration law.
