My name’s Nicole. I’m 27 years old and graduated from California State University of Long Beach with a BA in English Creative Writing and a minor in Sociology. My passion for reading is what drove me to find a home in writing, whether it’s fictional or personal. I believe there is a rawness in writing about yourself and your experiences, I choose to write to let others know that whatever it is they are suffering with they’re not alone. I have and still struggle daily with my mental health, and it’s okay to be vulnerable— to be heard.
