Tamra Lepro was born in Boise, Idaho and spent many years living in various parts of the United States. After settling down in New York in 2009, she applied to City College to continue her education. At first she chose a Psychology major and then decided to add English as a double major. She has since found her true calling in an amalgamation of the two disciplines. Pursuing English has allowed her to experience the wonderful opportunities at City College, including the City College Fellowship, English Honors, and the Isaacs Scholarship.
Majoring in English has allowed her to explore the various ways in which culture, politics, and society influenced authors across the world during the 18th and 19th centuries. Her research interests include identity, politics, and colonialism. She's currently pursuing an array of history courses to supplement her literary knowledge. She has plans to matriculate into a PhD program in English Literature.
