All You Need to Know About Katie Jackson

My name is Katie Jackson, and I’m currently double majoring in English and Criminology, Law and Justice on the pre-law track. I am an avid runner (it’s seriously the best form of stress relief) and a constant thrill-seeker. Skydiving, bungee jumping, parachuting, you name it: I’ll do it. I love to travel and immerse myself in cultures outside of my own. I have yet to see most of the world, but a few of my favorite places I’ve visited are the beautiful mountains of Switzerland, the gorgeous port cities of Italy, the bustling streets of London, and the romantic cities of France. When I’m not traveling, running or seeking new adventures, you can find me holed up in my room binge watching crime documentaries. From a young age, I’ve been fascinated in learning about criminals and their behavior. (Strange for a child, I know) I have always known that I wanted to follow in my dad’s footsteps and become a prosecutor.

I know that this class will be beneficial for me in my future endeavours as a lawyer. I have always enjoyed public speaking (I participated in speech all throughout high school) and I know I will enjoy this portion of rhetoric. I also enjoy reading, which I know I will be doing a lot of in law school. By the end of this course, I hope to have improved in the process of forming valid arguments and in my writing skills. I foresee a plethora of papers to be written in my future.

Just before typing this blog post, I convinced my older sister to borrow a dress of mine rather than buy her own for an event she will be attending in a few weeks. She came to me with a dilemma and was seeking a solution: to wear something she already had, or waste her money on a dress she would only wear once. I presented an alternative solution: to have her borrow one of my dresses. I persuaded my sister into choosing the option I presented through the use of logos. By pointing out that she should be saving her money for our trip to Chicago coming up and that she really didn’t need any more dresses to add to her ever growing wardrobe, I used logic and facts to direct her towards an efficient solution.
