“Experience Makes the Man”
I started this blog after dropping out of college because my voice needed a space to grow. It wanted to build something with stories and pictures that I took of Orlando. This city made me into a writer that cares about the arts community. Non-profit organizations like Page 15 and Timucua Arts Foundation installed in me a plethora of stories that I want to share with others.
I’ve met a lot of artists and friends through volunteering. Each one of them found a way to do the things they love despite lethargy and time-constraints. They inspired me to continue a degree in Creative Writing which led to a writing position at ArtBorne Magazine, which led to an internship, which led to a paid position at another non-profit organization. Writing became a career and hobby in which I continue to challenge myself.
