Q: What is your thesis about?
A: My thesis is a creative nonfiction piece on foster care. It’s about my family’s and my experience with foster children, how we’ve learned to navigate that, my personal take on what it’s like, what the issues are that need to be solved and what I’ve seen.
Q: How did this idea come about?
In the past, Amherst’s sexual misconduct policy was covered under the broad Statement on Respect for Persons. Over the past few years, the College decided to specify what constituted a violation of the sexual harassment section of the honor code. As of this summer, the Statement on Sexual Misconduct has been added to the Student Handbook.
