About Me

Recent UConn grad with a degree in English Lit and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. Interested in women’s rights, and currently working with domestic violence victims. Guided by feminism and words.

“I write because life does not appease my appetites and anger… To become more intimate with myself and you. To discover myself, to preserve myself, to make myself, to achieve self-autonomy. To dispell the myths that I am a mad prophet or a poor suffering soul. To convince myself that I am worthy and that what I have to say is not a pile of shit… Finally I write because I’m scared of writing, but I’m more scared of not writing.”
- Gloria Anzaldua
