Ever since I was a child, the idea of getting into a university and ultimately getting into a successful career has been drilled into my head by any and all of the adults that were around me. As I aged, I wanted to be a doctor, a surgeon, and a psychiatrist – careers that, if achieved, would no doubt place me in a position of a high pay-grade, of which I intended to use to support my family. I was definitely naive of exactly how difficult the journey would be if I were to pursue any of these careers. I will refuse to lie here: I know my limits, and I know that I am not as passionate about these jobs as I wanted to be, so I thankfully saw my failure before it was too late.
What I absolutely desire to pursue as a life-time commitment is to write. I want to create narratives that will touch peoples’ souls and to open their minds to unthinkable possibilities. Throughout my years in high school and my first year of college, I’ve come in contact with a rainbow spectrum of people. I’ve met and befriended gays, lesbians, asexuals, pansexuals, transexuals, demisexuals – and all of these human beings had different nationalities and experiences, experiences I want to build upon in my stories. Being part of the LGBTQ community myself, I want as much media representation as my acquaintances do, and I plan to do exactly that through my writing.
