I believe that strengthening skills of persuasive articulation in both written and spoken presentation is relevant to any discipline. As I pursue an interdisciplinary study in the arts, consideration between speaker and audience is always relevant. Part of this inquiry calls for finding how to effectively communicate in order to grow connection and relevancy from one discipline to another. Here, I am at the center of this conversation of effective communication. Students are always shaping my consideration of a various argumentation works and styles. Becoming a SAW mentor has opened the door for me to engage in such intellectual conversation with fellow students, which I find most fulfilling about the SAW program.
