Describe a significant breakthrough in your development as a writer:  Through my writing courses in Spanish and Arabic as well as in scientific courses, I have learned that writing connects all disciplines and is necessary to communicate our ideas irrespective of what field it may be in. It’s a process that many may not enjoy but always feels rewarding when finally accomplished because of its ability to connect others to our ideas and to express our emotions concretely through a tangible product.
