About the Author
At seven years old, I discovered the gift of the pen. Playtime consisted of writing short stories, songs, and composing music. Unaware I was creating art, writing gave me freedom other activities couldn’t fulfill. I wasn’t strong enough to vocalize my emotions, so I wrote letters to people that caused me pain. Writing is my healing mechanism. In high school, I won an award for a poem I wrote about my secret eating disorder. My mom learned of my struggle through my art, and at this moment she told me I would be a writer. The decision to actualize my passion for writing renewed the freedom of my pastime. I write to heal, express my truth, and show love. I write to empower women, cultivate youth, and impact the world. I write for freedom.
