My name is Emily and I’m in my late 20s. I’m a product marketing professional by day but a classically trained journalist by trade who is constantly looking for the story. My brain whirs in steady rhythm with quips and poems that beg to be written.
People have often described me as “spunky.” As I get older I’m finding this has changed to “energetic” and sometimes even “hopelessly optimistic.” I approach most things with an insatiable curiosity and a wish to understand.
The works of Emily Dickinson, Mary Oliver, and Margaret Atwood inspire and fuel me, and I’m enraptured by the way words weave to form worlds and experiences previously unimaginable.
When I’m not sipping coffee or tea and pondering the meaning of life (so cliché) you can find me out living it. I’m a runner, biker (mountain, gravel), hiker, and novice food explorer. These days I don’t feel complete at the end of the day if I haven’t ventured out in the world at least once, crafted something in the kitchen, or written a line or two in my line-less notebook.
I’ve spent my 20s coming to terms with who I am and who I will be. I’ll share these lessons with you, along with new ones that are sure to come.
