I’m thrilled to be here and be a part of the Dallas Voice team. I’ve written a few articles for the Voice before and am looking forward to working for them this summer.
So some info about me. Despite how young I look, I’m actually 22. Yes, I know I’ll be thanking divinity for my great genes later on. Haha!
I’m a creative writing major at the University of North Texas and am seeking a minor in social sciences with a concentration in anthropology. I’m from a military family so I was always studying people and culture in order to learn how to best try and fit in.
Additionally, just last week I was accepted to the Lambda Literary Writers Retreat for Emerging LBGT Voices. It’s a huge opportunity and is from July 28-Aug. 4, the week after my internship is finished. I’ll need some help getting there, though.
If you can make a donation, it’s 100 percent tax-deductible and every dollar helps! Even if all you can donate is a dollar, it helps. I only have to raise $300. I’m an aspiring author and my manuscript, The Black Night Rave, is under consideration at Razorbill (an imprint of Penguin Group) and has been requested by a few agents. If I get to the Lambda Literary Retreat, this will definitely be a huge plus and garner some notice for my work. So, please help me? In turn, my work would help bring us closer to total inclusion and acceptance into society.
I look forward to hearing from and connecting y’all!
