J. Fernandez was born in Southern California and graduated with a degree in Social Sciences. Her love for literature, music and history has played a major role in her creative process as a writer. It is her belief that in light of the challenges and imperfections we face as a human race we are still resilient. There is a beauty in all the diverse cultures that make up the world despite the ugliness that can exist in our spirit. It is the palate of all the assorted ethnicities that create the canvas of life which she respects and loves. There is color, music, and poetry in the way people live. All individuals are a ballad that moves with different rhythms and define our humanity, mirroring an array of complex emotions that range from sorrow, vanity, fear, and happiness. She is influenced and moved by society’s constant struggle to understand itself. Her vision is the desire to go beyond tolerance and move toward compassion and kindness and enjoy our multicultural differences. To know that we are distinct individuals yet not autonomous from the world we live in.
