Defining Experiences

What are some experiences that changed your life and influenced your writing?

My Concussion
“I got a concussion in gym class and it changed the course of my life. When I got my concussion in my junior year of high school, I thought I was going to be a Marine Scientist. Over the long years of recovery, I learned and had to slowly accept that being a scientist was not going to be the best option for me anymore. My injury made it extremely hard for me to learn science, but on the bright side, I started to lean on my writing. I started to write more and put my thoughts on paper. The pain I endured gave me the inspiration I needed to write my poems. I never thought that I would share my poems with anyone. I thought I would be the only person to read them, but look where I am now!”

The Pandemic
“While staying home during the Coronavirus pandemic, I finished putting together my poems into Earthly Thoughts. I was supposed to have a film internship, but it was postponed because of the virus. If the festival was not postponed, I am not certain when and if I would have had time to finish putting together this book.”
