About the Writer...

The fine arts give color and expression to all seasons of life. The persistence of literature in human history is one of its characteristics I most admire, as people cannot live without words any less than water or air. My primary focus is to strengthen my abilities in writing, reading, and literary editing. I graduated high school a year in advance via The Keystone School to accelerate my academic and professional trajectory. I’m currently pursuing a degree in English at St. John’s University, while working as an intern with publication Quail Bell Magazine. I’m always searching for experience opportunities in the language arts field, through volunteer work or writing commissions. 



A few of my favorite authors are Jeffrey Eugenides, Joan Didion, Lewis Carroll, Sylvia Plath, and Virginia Woolf. If I were only allowed to read one genre for the rest of my life, I'd read memoirs or historical nonfiction. Truth makes for the most entertaining stories!

The Real Bling Ring - Unabridged Review

After watching Miles Blayden-Ryall’s mini docu series, The Real Bling Ring: Hollywood Heist you may ask how three, four, at times seven inexperienced bandits got away with raiding Hollywood’s wealthiest celebrity estates—more than once. The Los Angeles Police Department was asking themselves the same question when they began uncovering the criminal activity of a group of Valley teens and young adults arrested in 2009. If you add up the numbers, of which there are many, the individuals notoriously known as “The Bling Ring” in pop culture looted over $3 million dollars worth of cash, jewelry, and designer items from celebrity addresses they found online.

Generational Artistry - Gwendolyn Brooks

Brooks incorporates references to the Mona Lisa and Chicago Picasso to illustrate the distance between African-American communities and art, yet refashions the narrative with an empowering declaration of spectator autonomy. Brooks reflects on her poetry in Conversations with Gwendolyn Brooks, a collection of interviews unpacking her anthology and insight as a Black American artist.
