Abstract/Description

My senior thesis is a creative piece in progress that incorporates several themes, techniques, and influences that have impacted my writing as an undergrad at Dominican University.

My work is a character driven science fiction novel, the protagonist Copper Fields is a young peace-seeking teenager who is searching for a greater truth in the small, close minded community he lives in. Upon meeting the female protagonist (Meilin) with views and values that completely contrast his own, Copper struggles to find some sort of middle ground. The plot of the story is less relevant than the progression and interactions among characters. The goal of this approach is to highlight the power of character and the effects that one dynamic individual can have on another. The themes that the work will focus on are: individuality versus established systems, questioning commonly accepted “truths”, looking deeper than what is given at face value and pacifism vs. activism. Much of my writing is inspired by spirituality, my own life experiences, and the importance of having dialogue as a form of self-growth and higher learning.
