Who are you?
My name is Westley Winks. I am currently a Peace Corps Volunteer doing youth development in Morocco. If you want to know more, check out my now page that has all of my current projects and quests.
Where am I?
This is my personal website and my little corner of the internet. Over the years, it has really functioned as my personal learning grounds. It gave me a space to try out new stuff like coding and writing.
This website is open source and built by me. It has been through many revisions and has taken inspiration from many others. Currently, I am using Hugo as the static site generator, new.css as my styling framework, and GitHub Pages to host it. The cool footnotes are provided by littlefoot.js 1 .
My goal with this revision was to simplify it. It became bloated with all of my experimenting. Hence the use of a completely classless CSS framework. As always and with everything, it's a work in progress.
Do you do any writing?
I am by no means a professional but I dabble. I just kind of write what and when I feel like it. My most recent posts:
- A Love Letter to my Laptop in writing
- My Weekly Review Process in writing
- The Afternoon Slump in peace corps
- Why and How to Keep Track of Your Accomplishments as a PCV in writing
- Upgrade in books
Can I see a quick resume?
- Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering / Oregon State University / 3.79 GPA / Magna Cum Laude / Sep 2017 - Jun 2022
- Peace Corps Volunteer / Morocco / Sep 2022 - Current

Where else are you on the internet?
If you have any questions at all or just want to chat, I would love to hear from you.
