  Anita Hunter

Anita Hunter is a Masters student at the University of Washington whose academic endeavors began with linguistic field work in the Axa Delta, where she tamed an orphaned wild foal, which she would later import to the United States and train in the art of haute école dressage.  She holds a B.A. in Language: German and French, from the University of California at Riverside, and a J.D. from the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. Her most memorable time of college was her year attending the Georg-August Universität in Göttingen.  Portions of the year seem as non-existent, or perhaps in a grayness, though a persistent sense remains of having experienced something beyond her, a recollection without a foundational experience, she said. Her interests include British and German wartime history, origins of the German language, and Scottie dogs.
