Ammar's first post

My name is Ammar Elmahdy. I'm an 18 year old from Dublin, Ohio who is majoring in pharmaceutical sciences. I've always been somewhat interested in the pharmacy field due to my father's heavy engagement in the field. I plan on going to graduate school after I complete my undergraduate degree from the Ohio State University. In my free time I don't like to do anything too exotic; hanging out with friends does the job for me. A fun fact about me would be that I was born in Egypt and I moved to the states at the age of eight or nine.

A quote that really resonated with me from the book would be "think small, if you have a big mind it will show itself". I enjoyed this quote because it really makes me keep in mind that I always have to have some type of audience awareness, and my writing has to be generalized enough that it can be geared towards a common audience. This quote, in a way, uses the idea of "writing for the lady on the bus" discussed in class; most writing has to be understood by some sort of audience. As a result of this quote, I make sure to keep my writing complex, but not too complex that only I would understand it.

  1. I like the quote you chose, I can see what your saying about it keeps you in mind on the awareness of your audience. Good luck in pursuing your major, wish you the best.
