Here’s a brief video about me and my goals for college, life, and this course!
Hello! I’m Mary Kelley. I’m an eighteen year old freshman at The Ohio State University, Fun fact: I actually have enough credits already to be considered a sophomore because I did dual enrollment here last year. I was born in Denver, CO and raised in Columbus, Ohio. I love to read, spend time with my dog, family and friends, and play board games. I also love to travel and photograph! So far, the two other countries I’ve been to are Spain and Morocco. I especially loved the time I spent in Madrid!
As someone who has always loved stories and words, I’m excited to be majoring in linguistics! I hope to specialize in language endangerment, documenting dying languages before they disappear. I fell in love with linguistics after participating in OSU’s Summer Linguistic Institute for Youth Scholars program (SLIYS).
