Will Snipes

About Me


My name is Will Snipes. I am a freshman from Dalton, GA. I am in North House at Vanderbilt. I enjoy playing golf and am on the golf team here at Vandy. I also enjoy fishing, hanging out with friends, and having a good time. I listen to most all types of music, from country to alternative to rap; there is nothing that I absolutely hate, but I do have an undying love for Rap music. My goal here at Vanderbilt is to take advantage of the opportunities that await me here, both academically and athletically. I would love to be able to go to dental school after college, but I have no plans for a major just yet. Go Dores!

My Writing Career

My experience as a writer has been strictly through high school. There we had some pretty tough paper topics involving most anything. From writing about novels we read to writing about self reflection on certain issues. I haven't really had much experience writing true fiction. I found that I did well on the paper topics that involved me writing about an event and tying it into my life to draw personal experience. I feel like it's hard to be wrong if you talk about personal experience. Writing has been something that I have struggled with but am willing to get better at.

My Writing Strengths

There aren't too many strengths in my writing, but I'll give it a shot. I feel like I definitely stay true to who I am as a person. I don't try to change my personality to make me look better in my writing. I also feel like I'm pretty good giving solid refrences to back up certain points. I usually picked passages that were able to prove my point. Another strength for me would be the fact that I'm able to incorporate personal experience into most of the paper topics that I have had.

My Writing Weaknesses

I feel like my biggest weakness for my writing is my lack of confidence in it. I don't think I am a great writer, and I think that might be one of the things holding me back. Another weakness for me is the Introduction paragraph. I have a hard time writing a solid intro to give a good overview of the paper as a whole. Another weakness that I have is using contractions too much. I know in the past with formal writing, I have had a hard time of getting away from using common contractions.
