20. Writer, artist, traveler, latte enthusiast. Here to inspire & spread love.

There are so many stories out there that deserve recognition, so much we have yet to fight for and change. I want to be a part of that movement — one that is inclusive, courageous, and hopeful. My dream is to travel the world someday and gather the stories of people I find insightful and inspiring, not just to shift my own perspective but give others the chance to as well. With the limited resources I have now as a college student, I want to start with my own community; with the various issues I see in our current political and social climate. I want to share my concerns, my opinions, my stories — in the hope that others, especially those whose voices have been sidelined, will be inspired to do the same.

      Hi Hank, thank you so much for your kind words! 2018 has been amazing so far, thanks for asking — I already feel like I’ve grown so much after my first year of college and I’m so excited for whatever comes next!
      To answer your question: I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember, and it’s always been one of my favorite creative outlets because I can actually express what I’m feeling in a way that is articulate and relatable. I started sharing my writing knowing that the feedback would help improve it and really tap into my potential; but also because having a platform with readers from around the world gave me the opportunity to speak up about issues that matter and should matter, both locally and globally.
      I’m hoping to eventually expand the topics I write about, and really delve into stories about people and cultures because that’s what really interests me — definitely stay tuned for my future projects, and once again thank you for your comment!
