This is Andre's first semester in the writing center, but he has been teaching at EMU since 1998. He teaches WRTG 121, Science Fiction, African American Literature, Afrofuturism, and Poetry. His professional writing generally deals with the history, narrative structure and representation of minority peoples in comic books. He is also an accomplished poet and spends his free time obsessing about Batman and soccer.
Master of Science student, Orthotics & Prosthetics program
Azim is going into his second year of graduate school at EMU where he is completing his MS in Orthotics and Prosthetics. This will be his first year working with the University Writing Center, but Azim has plenty of professional writing experiences, which include work in global health, innovative technologies, and education. Research writing is his forte but he believes the best way to excel at any type of writing is to organize your thoughts before putting "pen to paper." He is originally from Toronto, where he grew up before heading to Vancouver to do his Bachelor in Kinesiology at the University of British Columbia. Once he has completed his studies here, he will begin his residency to go on and become a certified orthotist and prosthetist.

She also teaches beekeeping at MSU’s Novi campus, runs approximately 100 hives of honey bees in Northfield Township and at The Farm at St. Joe’s Hospital, and sells many types of honey bee products at local farmers markets and festivals.
