Hey guys, my name’s Emily Hernandez. I’m a 24-year-old writer from the Boogey Down Bronx in New York City.
For as long as I can remember I have always had this love for writing; stories, thoughts… you name it, I wrote it. I would constantly drive my parents crazy whenever we went out because no matter what, I would always somehow find myself in the books and notebook section of the store grabbing for an empty, brand new book to be able to write in. I had, easily, 50 of them all over my room when I was younger (now whether or not I would actually fill them all up is a separate issue, but the answer is no, I did not haha).
Fast forward a couple of years, and not much has changed really other than the fact that I’m more sensible with just sticking to one full book at a time to write everything down in and go back to later on whenever I want or need to. I have always loved to write and still do, but was also always super shy and nervous about putting my stuff out there. It’s a scary thing to be so open and vulnerable with your thoughts to not only the people that you know, but also complete strangers. Will they like the things that I say and think? Will they judge me for these things if they don’t? Will people take the time to even read my stuff? Am I even good at this? It’s all so intimidating, and has been what’s kept me from doing something like this for years. This is a side of me that few to none have seen. But, I came to a point in my life recently where I decided that if I don’t put myself out there and see where this goes, not only will I never get to see my full potential, but I’ll also never get to achieve a fraction of the goals that I set for myself in my life.
So, without further adieu, here it is. This is me. This is who I am, and ultimately, I’m just a girl from a big city trying to find myself and make an impact on the world through my writing. This is my lifestyle blog that isn’t actually about any one particular thing, it’s going to be about a variety of different things; and I hope you guys like the things that I end up posting about, and if not, that’s okay too. I’m super excited for this step in my life and can’t wait to see where it takes me. Hopefully you guys will be there with me every step of the way and we’ll make something big out of this one day.
