I am Wan Kyn Chan, from Singapore. Currently I am studying in Purdue University, West Lafayette, majoring in Mechanical Engineering and minoring in Art and Design. Now most like raise their eyebrows at my choice of major and minor. But to me, these two have always been harmoniously working hand in hand to create a beautiful hybrid of inspirational artworks. This idea of creating a hybrid has transformed my perception of convention, allowing me to look at the world through a different lens.
This press is part of my English course requirement, to share with the world what we have learned throughout the semester. It was a journey of self-discovery and reflection, allowing us to discover what we did not otherwise know about our literacy development as we grew up. We explored the ideas of “sponsors” – people, items, organization, etc. who pushed us to grow in our reading and writing, concepts of a discourse and rhetoric and genres among many other concepts.
Now, this press is just a translation of all that. Take it as a journal. Take it as article. Take it as a reflection of my innermost thoughts. But most importantly , think about the concepts that I have posted and see if they reflect you. Maybe, just maybe, you will find a sentence, a phrase, a word that alters your perception of language or something that inspires you to reflect as well and that is all that I ask.
