I am a silly and sophisticated Savannah-native. I am enthused about my position at Connect Savannah as the Community/Event Journalist, because it combines the two things I love most: writing and my community! Writing is the way I draw images of the world around me since I quit actual sketching after middle-school. English Language Arts has always been my most endeared subject, so it's no surprise that I obtained my BA in English Language and Literature at the illustrious Savannah State University, my beloved 'University by the Sea.'
I was fortunate enough to complete my studies at SSU on a full-ride, academic merit scholarship. This is important because it has fueled a passion in me to give back to the community that has given to me. While I attended Savannah State, I served as a secretary of Way of Real Discovery poetry organization, where I frequently participated in spoken-word open mics. I also wrote articles for Tiger's Roar, the university's student newspaper publication. I give credit to these organizations who have shaped the expressive individual that I am today.
When I am not writing for Connect Savannah, I am writing other things... Seriously! I love to journal, blog, and write poetry. I am also studying Spanish due to my interest in mastering a new language and being bilingual. Additionally, I thoroughly enjoy the outdoors. I love to travel to different states and see different scenes, but I am captivated by the Savannah River, Spanish moss, and Palm trees throughout our beautiful city. Lastly, if you're into zodiac signs, I'm a Capricorn. This means that I am dedicated enough to climb any mountain (figuratively), and I'm already bilingual if you count sarcasm as my true first language.
