Junior Digital Media Editor

I am a person who feels too many things at once; writing allows me to search through
these emotions when I can’t decipher what I’m feeling. I try to write my thoughts everyday in a journal. I write whatever is on my mind, how my day went, and sometimes a new piece. Writing small notes everyday helps me sort through and explore different feelings and thoughts I wouldn’t normally try to touch. Without putting my thoughts on the paper I would only go see the surface level of what I’m experiencing. Poetry allows me to showcase myself in a way that is raw to me; fiction lets me create characters that are full and beautiful, I get to interact with them in a fantastic way; creative nonfiction is authentic to me. Having writing in my life makes the different sides of me show through.
