Meredith Hood's Profile
Meredith Hood is an over-worked, under-exercised, family oriented 22- year-old in her third senior semester studying print and digital news.
Her Irish family consists four siblings (two sisters and two brothers), two dogs, one hamster and a sack of potatoes.
She lived in St. Louis for seven years before moving to Ohio. But her family returned to Missouri just in time for her to have a series of spectacularly mediocre social and educational escapades at Union High School.
Although, as a senior the local newspaper recruited area teenagers to write for a weekend feature page. The page, My MO, was recognized by the Newspaper Association of America as the first teen page established by a non-daily newspaper.
When she likely to be playing badminton, cooking something delicious, laughing with friends and family, reading a book, listening to NPR, committing pop culture factoids to memory or watching a Harry Potter movie.
Meredith's post graduation plans involve moving back to Union, Mo. to work at the community college or local paper by day, while writing the next "big" script or novel on nights and weekends.
She hopes her writing will be embraced at some point in the future, but dreams that it will be adapted to a blisteringly funny, Emmy-winning comedy series on Showtime or HBO.
