I am from Andalusia, Alabama and I graduated from Lurleen B. Wallace Community College with an associate's degree in 2018. I love to write and hope to one day be a reporter and maybe even publish a novel. In my free time, I enjoy playing with my dog, watching movies with my fiance, and writing fiction.
