It's ironic that when asked to describe myself, I find that I'm at a loss for words. However, what I can tell you is why I write. I write to help people, to tell a story, to record history. I write to give people a whole body experience. I want my readers to taste the adjectives, feel the verbs, and touch the nouns. I want to have people's stories leave such an impression that they spark a change. And I do this in the hopes that, one day, it'll make the world a slightly better place.
I was born in raised in Hudson County, NJ (Union City to be exact). Having grown up all my life outside of NYC, I love the rush of a city. The movement, the people, the rhythm – it tells a story, and if you just look closely, you can see it. That's how I knew I wanted to start writing...at age 10. Fast forward 12 years and I've found my calling – journalism.
To me, being a journalist means being a civil servant. It means telling people's stories, recording history accurately, and ensuring that those in power are held responsible. That's the power behind words, behind publishing, behind journalism.
With roughly three years of experience, I'm looking to continue moving forward in the industry – utilizing all of my abilities to tell your story.
My name's Aimee, let's chat.
