Hi, I’m Amber.
I’m a freelance writer and journalism graduate student at the University of Georgia.
I’ve always been a book lover and have witnessed how moving words can be. I decided on a career that allows me to try my hand at being the creator, to make people feel stuff, to offer a new perspective and it be grounded in nonfiction — telling the real and raw.
Joan Didion, a journalist that I revere, once said, “I write entirely to find out what I’m thinking, what I’m looking at, what I see and what it means. What I want and what I fear.”
Journalism allows me to make sense of this world by telling the stories inside of it, which are everywhere, in everything. I’m honored to have been alotted experiences from people who have told me their triumphs and their pains. Although a trite phrase, but “giving voice to the voiceless” is my passion.
When I’m not piecing together an article or research paper, I over-indulge in live music performances, hike with my dog, write bad poetry and paint.
