I love to tell stories, especially the stories that are a little subversive and struggle to go with the grain. I love to write about things people are nervous to talk about, to learn about things I’ve never heard about before, and to meet people whose journeys I can barely imagine. And sometimes I just write fun stories that make people laugh or feel good. I’ve been lucky to write for publications like Bustle, Elite Daily, and Bitch Media and hope to continue to do what I love the most every single day. Cause, honestly, the writing life is the only life I can imagine.
