I am a middle-class college student racking up loan after loan for an expensive, but intellectually stimulating, private school English degree program in Michigan. I am a concerned citizen looking ahead towards my future, my friends' futures, and my family's future. I consider myself an American, and am proud of it. I believe every voice, no matter how small, should be heard, and that Democracy without this belief would not be true Democracy at all. My favorite poet and writer is William Blake who, upon facing the possibility of British reform after the French Revolution and the American Revolution, wrote "Without Contraries is no progession."
