Anthony Drapos graduated Summa Cum Laude from Worcester State University in the spring of 2023 with a degree in English and Communications. He is currently chasing his dreams as a participant in the Disney College Program.
Throughout college, Anthony dedicated his time towards gaining experience in Writing, Graphic Design, and Social Media Marketing. His scholarly interests included Mass Communication, Digital Imaging, LGBTQ+ Narratives, and Creative Writing Poetry. In the spring of 2022, Anthony was appointed by his university to do a Social Media Marketing Internship for the university’s English Department, in order to increase and retain department enrollment numbers. Through thorough examination of social media analytics, he found that his marketing rollout for the university’s English Department had engagement from states outside of Massachusetts as well, stretching as far as the nation's West Coast. Anthony has also acted as a major support system for his peers at University, by tutoring them in Writing and being a leading figure in Worcester State University's Writing Center. Anthony has written several published and/or award-winning pieces during his time at University, including his Barbara Pilon award recognized piece, If Not Now, When?: My Words of Honor to LGBTQ Youth. He writes a broad spectrum of genres, but enjoys focusing on the Narrative, Poetry, and Music Review genres most. His own poems and essays have appeared in The New Worcester Spy, and The Stone Quarterly Literary Arts Journal.
When Anthony isn’t dedicating himself to his work and readying for his future, he enjoys traveling, music, graphic designing, all things Disney, going to concerts, being a full time Miley Cyrus fan, and teaching those around him his very simple belief system; that we should always be kind to one another.
With a bachelor's degree and an immense amount of Writing, Graphic Design, and Social Media skills, Anthony is ready and eager to engage in future opportunities!
