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 mysterious, and often oppressive, world by telling the stories inside of it. They are everywhere, in everything, and my goal is to share them with integrity and empathy. I believe in the power of immersion, and I cover anything that speaks to me — the odd, the unjust, and there’s always something underneath the seemingly ordinary.
In my free time, I indulge in live music performances, hike with my dog, write poetry, paint and ponder on my existence.
