Hello and Welcome!

I am a 19 year old, you can find in Branford, Connecticut 60% of the time. The rest of my days are spent either basking in the Florida sun with my boyfriend, or probably at the Chipotle in the Financial District.

I am someone who from a young age was told, like many other people in my generation, that I needed to perform and to make myself heard. I lived my life this way until I realized, I am notĀ talented, (like really. Theres no talent here). I am not an actress, a singer, or a dancer. I am just a victim in this generation that told me I was.

I found my place in this world doing technical theatre (hellooooo there Wagner College), instead of being on the stage, I wanted to be behind the scenes, but to still hold the same power in making people laugh or cry. What I really want, is to cause a positive reaction, and to change someone’s way of thinking. Still, after finding something that I can thoroughly enjoy, I still find myself thinking, is this really where I am supposed to be?

I didn’t get to 19 without struggle. My father passed away when I was 17 after a long struggle with prescription drugs and mental illness, leaving behind my mother, my two sisters, and myself. I was not impoverished, but I also didn’t have it easy. I am a regular person who is just trying to find my voice, in a world where you can so easily be lost.

Join me on my journey and see inside my stream of consciousness. I’m just a girl from Connecticut, but I have a lot to say, and I would love for you to listen.
