Marina Tinone | Class of 2020

Marina TinoneMarina Tinone is a senior in Silliman College from West Hartford, CT. She is a happy English major who loves reading (and close-reading) everything, but her academic focus is on children’s literature, pedagogy, and genre problems in minority/underrepresented literature. She is also a Writing Concentrator in creative nonfiction, working on a collection of essays on ‘voice’ this fall. Outside of reading and writing, she loves learning new languages, hiking, and looking at the sky.

On campus, she is also an Academic Strategies Peer Mentor—so you might also see her around the CTL. Please talk to her about getting through the major’s requirements, applying to creative writing classes, finding specific interests within the English major, good hiking trails, good jokes… anything and everything in between! She can’t wait to meet you!
