Paige Hinson

Program Assistant and Student in Boone, North Carolina

I am in my last semester of graduate school at Appalachian State University, in Boone, NC, where I work as the graduate program assistant for the Gender, Women's, and Sexuality Studies program. My current position is extremely rewarding, not only because it enables me to combine work with my passion for social justice issues, but also because through this opportunity, I have learned how to update our program website and Facebook account and have been able to use my eye for design to create all of our program advertising.

In May 2017, I will graduate with a masters degree in English that includes a minor in Gender, Women's, and Sexuality Studies, and I am very excited to relocate from the Boone area once I find a new position in which I might continue to combine my professionalism with my love for writing and/or social issues.

In addition to a strong education background, I possess a unique blend of professional experience that includes four years as a writer for the Post and Courier newspaper in Charleston, SC, and close to two years as the director of conference services at a resort in Asheville, NC. I look forward to moving back into the professional world and finding a position that weds my management, communication, and problem-solving skills with my strong work ethic, highly-motivated attitude, and outgoing personality.
