To be 100% honest, I never liked writing. Ironic, right?
In both grade school and high school, writing was forced. It was pretty much required in almost every class. A paper here, an essay there- I couldn’t stand it. There just wasn’t enough room for me to write about things that I liked.
After graduating high school, however, I started journaling and having an interest in having my thoughts published somewhere. I saw FreshU and Blavity articles circling on Facebook, and signed up for both on the same day. Since then, I’ve been writing anything I can think about. These publications give me the outlet I had been looking for, to write about whatever pops into my head.
Hope you enjoy!
