My passion and talent for writing began with failure. In elementary school, I wasn't the best writer and there was always red marks all over my papers. Instead of helping me, my mom decided to let me feel disappointment for myself and it worked. I was so tired of seeing red marks all over my papers that I began to work harder in my writing. I went from red marks all over my page to praise from my teachers. I learned from my failure, worked hard and eventually became a good writer causing my passion for writing to grow. I have had multiple blogs ever since xanga came out in middle school. This was my personal way to express myself and continue practicing my writing. Last year, I decided to take my writing from a personal level to a professional level and applied for The College Tourist Fall 2015 travel writer internship. I have 5 featured articles on their website as well as one that was posted on The Huffington Post. I also write for my company Make Life Count's blog. To check out my articles click the links below..
