S. Yaeger's picture

Hello All, My name is Shannon Yaeger and I grew up and currently live in Philadelphia. I am a McBride Scholar who has just entered Bryn Mawr as a junior. My educational background is pretty long and varied, as I have, over the course of my primary and secondary education, attended 8 different schools in the Philadelphia area. After high school, I traveled throughout the U.S. while waiting tables to support myself. Eventually, I decided to return to school and pursue an education in English Literature. I spent two and a half years at the Community College of Philadelphia before transferring to Bryn Mawr this fall. I am still a little shocked at having been admitted and haven't really thought about what I am hoping to gain from this seminar in depth yet. However, I know that I do hope to improve my listening and speaking skills, and to get to know all of you better.
