Name: Hana Yoo
Graduate Assistantship Description: I edit Ex Libris, the graduate student blog. I’m editing the page you’re reading right now. (Meta! Or something.) I also make slides for the English department monitors—as does the lovely Anastasia, another GA in the English department. Her profile’s coming soon.
Thoughts on the Graduate Assistantship: I left a job I loved to go back to school this past autumn. I couldn’t have taken that leap of faith without the GAship. Fully funded English master’s degree programs are about as common as angonoka tortoises.
Serving as a GA has been a pleasure and a privilege so far. The wonderfully flexible schedule and opportunities to learn “marketable” new skills don’t hurt.
