Meet English major, film minor Angelia Buckingham
Angelia writes her poetry under the pseudonym T. Dwella to keep her “creative selves” separate from one another (her songs and short stories are published under her legal name). The multi-talented undergraduate enjoys writing poetry because it allows her to use words and the arrangement of the words on a page to create an image in the mind of the reader.
