Getting Real
I told myself that I would never post another photo of myself here on the blog; that I would dedicate this online space for my writing. And yet here is this new post with not one, but 6 photos featuring myself, front and center. I try my best these days not...

“Who’s
Anna Wintour?” This was the jaw-dropping, Ripley’s Believe It or Not! type of question that people asked me
