I’m Claire Alford, and I’m the new assistant to the director intern at TU Press!
My parents instilled in me from an early age the idea that books are cool, fun, and important, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. As I’ve grown older, reading has turned into more of a school-focused chore (the woes of a twenty-one-year-old).I am a junior communication major at Trinity with a love for film, television, music, and books (basically any type of media). I’m in limbo about what I want to do in the future, but one thing I know is that I want to be surrounded by creativity—and that’s exactly what I get here at the press.
At the press, I get to work on beautiful books, both inside and out. This has inspired me to begin reading as a pastime again—that is, for something besides school. If nothing else, I’ll become a more informed human being, and what could be wrong with that?
Aside from reading, I enjoy being a student at Trinity (especially now that I’ve finished my last midterm exam) and exploring everything San Antonio has to offer. I’m thrilled to be working at the press and am excited to learn the ins and outs of this wonderful business, from equally wonderful people.
