Who am I?

My name is Madison Sykes. Originally form Sacramento, California, I  studied  English and Theatre at Santa Clara University. I graduated in 2020 and I am now pursuing a law degree. I hope to continue to inspire others to read and write, instilling in them the idea that their voice is unique, valuable, and capable of creating change.

This site is an ePortfolio that I created to showcase the written work I did done in my Writing Studies course. In this class, we discussed rhetoric, genre, discourse, and discourse communities.

Over the course of the academic quarter, I generated five literacy explorations, as well as a cumulative final research project, which all can be found here. Through this content, I learned many things about my own writing processes as well as those of others. The purpose of this site is to share the ideas we generated in class with whomever else may find themselves in a similar conversation, which, thanks to my final project, includes anyone who uses Instagram. So if you are a social media user, this site is for you! Check out the aim of my final project.
