I honestly never know what to put in these. I love reading and writing but that should be obvious since I'm on this site:). I love animals and because of that I want to be a veterinarian, as well as an author.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the Portland metro area of Oregon. Most of my life I've lived in apartments or public housing and this provided me with a different view on the world. I found that the things most people took for granted I cherished, like consistent meals or not having to worry about evictions. Because of this outlook on life my writing became fantastical, since I could not do many of the things I longed to do as a kid. I do not regret my life, however, because without it I wouldn't be who I am today.
When did you first start writing?
I think I've been writing my whole life, or at least from the time I could read and write. I've always felt a passion for writing and storytelling, even making up plays for my siblings and I to do when we were younger.
