Ramon Veras ('21) is a student at St. Lawrence University. He is a creative writing major and his other scholarly interests lie in history, philosophy, government, and much more. Along with these interests, he is now applying to MFA programs throughout the world; in these programs he seeks looking to improve his use of language, improve his ear for stories and how to tell them, and meet many writers from diverse backgrounds. In high school, Ramon completed a novel and in doing so, he fell in love with writing. Throughout his four years of studying at SLU, he has worked dutifully aside from classes and extracurricular activities to work on another novel: Generation Beta. He has written short stories and poems outside of that novel. He plans to dive into the depths of his creativity and allow the writer within him to flourish in his further studies.
