I'm a writer through and through. I've been writing poetry and short stories since I learned how to write. Nothing makes me happier than when I have a pen and paper in hand or a computer at my fingertips.

I'm just your average person, nothing more, nothing less.

I tend to be opinionated at times yet reserved.

I love spontaneous trips and meeting new people.

I'm working on trying to figure out who I want to be and what I want to do with my life. All I know so far is that I want to strive to be a good person.

It took me a long time but I've finally gained the confidence in myself I never knew I had. Now nothing can hold me back
