This is Who I Am

 

Herina-10I am a forever evolving student of life. By day, I work in academia. My professionalism, tact, soft skills, and EQ have lent me many opportunities to learn from and grow with people.

By night, I document my life in prose. I believe wholeheartedly in telling stories through written art allows an audience to have a new experience. I learn more and more about the world daily and use my professional work as an avenue to put this knowledge to use helping others and engaging in discussions that promote progress. I’m a people person prioritizing, first, interpersonal relationships, that indeed make the world go round.

A writer at the core, I have been able to marry my love of the corporate world with my writing skills.

Ever since I learned how to hold a pencil, I’ve created art on canvas. The things you’ll read here form a story of my life. My reflections, my musings, my experiences illustrate evolution. I am not nor do I claim to have it all together. I am a real person. I fall. I get up. I fall again. Some people say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. That’s alright but I prefer what doesn’t kill you, makes you useful. If my words and experiences can be inspiration, encouragement or comfort for another, I’ve lived my life well. I am forever a work in progress. Life is a journey. I like to take the scenic route.

Find my work in the Huffington Post, Ebony.com, Mommy Noire, Clutch Magazine, and The Root. My first novel titled The Content of Things Undone was published in November 2016. Buy it here. I blog sometimes too.
