Hi, my name is Shama Ams. I joined the Writing Center team in
the Fall of 2011, and haven’t looked back ever since. I’m a
native of Houston, Texas and enjoy playing classical and
contemporary jazz piano, basketball, martial arts, debating policy,
and reading about philosophy and science. I am a double major in
Government and Politics and Economics, and currently in the BA/MA
program specializing in International Relations. My research
focuses on Inequality, Economic Development, and Disease Prevention
in the Global South.
My writing philosophy has always been to allow people’s original
thoughts to flow naturally. It has always been easier for me to
understand concepts before I begin to develop an argument or a
hypothesis; so, I try to adopt the same approach with my
clients. The Writing Center is a warm, relaxed atmosphere to
do whatever interests you. I would recommend visiting to anyone.
