School of Arts and Letters
Writing & Publication Major
When Autumn is asked if she has any special talents she would like to share, she laughs, blushes, and says, “Well, I can tie a cherry stem into a knot with my tongue.” It’s probably best she stick to writing!
Autumn Kinsey is a senior English major, with a focus in Writing and Publication. She was born on March 18, 1988, in Cleveland, Georgia, and spent her entire academic career there before attending North Georgia. She is not the only member of her family attending North Georgia, however; her younger brother, Spencer, also attends through the joint-enrollment program.
Autumn has always loved English; it was always her best subject in school, but surprisingly, she decided to become an English major after seeing the movie “How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days.” “I know it sounds silly,” Autumn admits, “but I thought Kate Hudson’s character had the perfect job; it really got me interested in being an English major.” Autumn is also lucky enough to have a Mass Communication minor and therefore plans on using her degree to get a job in journalism. She says that her dream would be to be a travel writer for National Geographic while writing a novel on the side.
When Autumn is not busy writing or working on school assignments, you can find her at her job. She also enjoys baseball games, photography, and anything outdoors, saying, “I can’t wait for spring so I can go hiking and camping again.” Also, she was heavily involved in track and field in high school and still enjoys running today.
Autumn is proud to say that she will be graduating in August of 2010 and is hoping to be getting an internship with Creative Loafing Magazine, which will hopefully allow her to reach her ultimate goal of being an ingenious and independent woman and journalist traveling the world over.
