Writing is everything to me. I was never someone who talked a lot so as a result I took to writing.
My favorite classes were always my English and Creative Writing classes and my grades reflected that. Once I knew that I excelled in writing, I thought that I was going to be an author (I published a book, more on that later). When I got to college, I first studied History and Africana Studies. Both subjects were writing intensive and I was happy.
I didn’t want to stop there, I wanted my writing to have purpose. I wanted to tell my stories and I wanted to tell the stories of others, more importantly, people who couldn’t tell their own stories.
I continue to write because I THOROUGHLY enjoy it. Once I’m in the zone, I’m really there and I can’t be stopped. I write to encourage other people and to encourage myself. I write because, it’s simply what I want to do.
