Being able to share the chaotic mess of stories swirling in my head has always been a dream. But I worked to suppress it. Why? Because I was at war. Part of me is an artist while the other side is drawn to the analytical. With opposing passions and enough to make strangers scratch their heads when they ask about my hobbies, I decided to do what made sense. Major in biology and publish a couple of novels. While both are rigorous tasks, it has resulted in major internal growth. My college experience and science courses inspire plots and characters and my writing disciplines me for a future career in medicine. I can safely say the further I get on this journey to my dreams the more at peace I am.
