First of, as a writer for The Bolt, I wish to attempt to get the community of Concordia discussing relevant issues in the modern day society. The method in which I intend to achieve this is by writing, of course; however, I cannot promise my writings to be always agreeable. This is because all of our opinions and perspectives are subjective and fragile, but nonetheless relevant. Thus, I intend to stimulate a reaction from our community to be relevant in today’s society as a group of well-opinionated thinkers.
So, what are parts of my identity that may be reflected in the articles I will be writing? Well, I am an English major with a massive interest for Philosophy, History, Political Theory, and Sex and Gender Studies. Through my personal studies, I’ve been drawn to be fascinated by political concepts such as Marxism and Anarcho-Syndicalist Theory. Due to my Philosophy and Sex and Gender studies, I have grown to identify myself as an existentialist based upon Jean Paul Sartre’s philosophy, and a feminist under the influence of Simone deBeauvoir in the dominant sense of sex and gender equality and understanding.
Therefore, regardless of my attempts to write without bias, I am a victim of the human condition which makes qualities of my personal identity in some way an influential factor to my writing. Because of that, like you, I am another source of a perspective. Nevertheless, I wish to use such disadvantageous condition and use it in favour of writing articles that cause a reaction and discussion amongst our community.
I will be looking forward to start writing for The Bolt, and if there are any topics suggested for me to address I am open to suggestions. I hope that in some way or form my writing is a source of amusement and discussion, and for the community of Concordia to remain relevant to the modern world issues.
