Hi everyone! I'm a 24 year old oncology social worker from Connecticut. I recently completed both my bachelors and masters degrees in social work with hopes to help people cope with the many struggles that I have grown to know all too well.
I started blogging about 2 years ago when I found myself in a very dark place in my life. I had lost my mom a few years prior and was going through my first broken heart without her. I had nowhere to turn and had to pull myself up off of the ground and find a positive outlet. I wrote my first blog for a site called Pucker mob and was ecstatic to find out how good it felt. So I kept writing, and very quickly realized how "natural" I was at this whole writing thing.
A few months into it, I created a Facebook page and the followers and messages starting pouring in. I couldn't believe it, people loved my writing and I was helping people in a way I had no idea possible. This little hobby quickly became a passion, and it is now a place that I share my story and let my blogs unfold as life events happen to me.
I am so happy to be sharing my world with all of you and although it may be scary sometimes- my ultimate goal is to remind others when they are left in a dark place that you are NEVER as alone as you may feel. There is always someone else out there that understands your pain.
I look forward to sharing more of my journey with all of you.
