My name is Briana and I’m a 26 year old from Miami,FL. I’m really excited about being able to participate in this marathon and honestly really nervous. Typically it’s hard for me to come up with poems, I basically just wait for them to come to me and just go with the flow. So this will be a definite challenge for me. Actually pushing myself to try and not be lazy.
I’ve been writing since I was seven and I also do spoken word. Even though I have THE WORSE nerves, like cotton mouth, can’t eat, can’t stop shaking, hold my pee until it’s all over nerves, I love it. Once I get into my zone I become a different person and I can actually feel God. It’s an unexplainable feeling to say he least!
I currently have a full time job at a police department, a part-time job as a Pharmacy Tech, I’m a substitute, and I’m about to start my Masters in Mental Health Counseling. I love sitting on the beach at night, just not by myself because I’m afraid of what may come out of the water 0___0. Anyway, I wish you all the best of luck! I look forwarded to possibly reading you poems/ future books!
