My name is Vincent Segovia. I am an Army Brat born in Fort Hood, Texas and raised in Elroy, Wisconsin. While I grew up enjoying Theatre, I am currently preoccupied with the application of critical theory towards prose and poetry. Over the summer I have been working on a fictional novel with my mentors Dr. Bob Nowlan and Dr. Joel Pace, that depicts a veteran coping with prescription opioids. I hope to breakdown how opioid addiction usually begins through prescribed pills marketed for individuals to habitually take. In doing so, I hope to inform others of injustices both within and between societies and how these problems can change for the better. I intend on earning my Masters in Fine Arts in Creative Writing by concentrating on prose. While working in college classrooms, I hope to continue writing essays, novels, and poetry with the application of postmodernism. If I am not in a library with my head in a book, I am either running on a track or working on a nerdy freestyle.
