Devin is writer across many mediums and hopes to cover many more in her career. She has written for various school papers and had an essay about Studs Terkel published in a special section of the Columbia Chronicle. She wrote a one act play that was work shopped and asked to be expanded by Rockford theater company Artist's Ensemble. She began pursuing a career in journalism, but was frustrated by the unbiased views required in that industry. She is now majoring in Television: Writing and Producing at Columbia College Chicago so that someday soon she can force her aesthetics and opinions on the world.
