[ Personal Statement: ] “Poetry has always been quite a personal thing for me. I relate it a lot to storytelling and journaling. I like to be very descriptive when I write. My hope is that the reader will be able to fully experience every aspect of what I am writing about. Using each of the five senses is key for me. I think as writers, we all have a very unique style of capturing our audience. Coming from a very artistic background, I enjoy making reference to colors, nature, and the processes of creative hobbies.”
