Catherine Wilmot

Catherine is a sophomore at the University of Washington Tacoma, who is striving to see life in a different light. She’s a natural sympathetic who strives to become a literary activist for people in her local community and if possible, globally. She fervently wants to see a positive change in how people treat each other.

Writing has always been a passion of hers. Ever since she was little, one could probably find her in some corner with either a book covering her face, or find her scribbling some cute poem or story. It’s never been more than a hobby until she became a university student and joined the Tahoma West staff. For Cathy, writing has evolved into something more attainable and real; it’s become her life’s journey. Some of her most treasured literary options are Their eyes were watching God by Zora Neal Hurston, The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini, and Cold Country Farm by Stella Gibbons. Catherine is currently striving to become a journalist and hoping that in the near future, writing can evolve into something that defines her future.

Cathy is an Editor Assistant for the 2011 issue.
