I love to write and have been writing since my high school days. I also love fashion, but rather than tearing through magazines, I prefer to pull inspiration off of those on the same street corners as me. My journey as a writer and artist evolves every dayMy journey as a writer evolves everyday as I write. Your support and comments are highly welcomed in this endeavor that I have embarked upon.
