Rhi Bender

"Hello, my name is Rhi Bender, and I am a Liberal Arts major at SCCC looking to pursue a Biology or Zoology degree at UMaine. Outside of school, I love to read as well as volunteer as an EMT and with animals at Antler Ridge. I am practiced with MLA format and welcome all formal papers but have been writing creatively from a young age. I look forward to working with you and helping to achieve academic goals big and small!"

Stephanie Forte

"Hi, I’m Stephanie Forte! I am a Liberal Arts major who is passionate about writing and I hope to pursue a career in journalism. I would be thrilled to help with any writing assignment whether it be a research paper, short story, or even poetry as I have experience writing in multiple genres. I really enjoy writing and strive to make it a positive experience for others as well! In my free time, I enjoy music from The Beatles to Green Day, and often find song lyrics influence creativity in my own work. I believe there is a talented writer in everyone, and hope to help you find your voice as a writer."

Amelia Macchietto

"Hello! My name is Amelia and I graduated from SCCC in May 2017. Currently, I am enrolled in the Nurse Education Program and will graduate in December 2019. In the Writing Center, I can be most useful with research papers and/or lab reports. I am proficient in MLA and APA and can be especially helpful with grammar related questions."

Rae Manzari

"Hi! My name is Rae Manzari and I am a sophomore at SCCC. I am an Education Major and I have experience in both public and special needs classrooms. I have always been an avid reader and writer, and love all things nerdy. I’m proficient in MLA, APA writing styles, and can help you with any writing assignments, formal or creative. I look forward to working with you."

Abby Reed

"My name is Abby and I will be graduating from Sussex this spring semester. Although I am an Environmental Studies major, English has always been my favorite and strongest subject. I enjoy writing essays and reading literary texts. (For the most part!) When I am not in the classroom, I like hiking and most things outdoors. With all of this said, I hope to assist you with any English-related assignments you may have and look forward to helping you succeed!"

Victoria Scholz

"Hi! My name is Victoria and I am in my second semester here at SCCC as a Liberal Arts major. I have always held a strong interest in the arts, and enjoy creating art whether it’s painting or writing in my free time. I have always loved reading and writing and I am so excited to be able to help you to grow as a writer. I hope to see you soon!"
