Hi! My name is Amelia (if you couldn’t already tell). I love writing and reading, which is why I signed up for Medium. I’m not going to lie, I prefer writing fiction over writing articles, but I thought this would be a good platform for me to write about things that matter.
Honestly, hardly anyone I know likes talking about serious issues. Not to mention I am the only person in my family who considers themselves a feminist. Also, I have social anxiety, so actually talking about stuff in real life is difficult. Writing is my voice. It’s the way I can get words out easily without being too quiet or speaking too quickly. Most people can read and understand what I am trying to say when I handwrite or type my words.
I’m here because I needed a platform. I want to write about a variety of topics that interest me, which may be controversial from time to time. I also love reading other people’s articles and seeing their perspectives. I think reading is just as important as writing, if not more. It helps us learn and develop the skills we need to compose our own works.
So, since I’m here, I thought I would give a few extra facts about me so you get a better idea of who I am. I have been writing fictional stories since middle school and am just now starting to enjoy composing essays in college. I love horses a lot and I do horseback riding. Being around horses keeps me sane. Speaking of, I am majoring in Equine Science, so I have plenty of time learning about and being around horses.
I watch a lot of TV and could be here all day listing all the shows I watch/have watched. My favorite book series ever is the Gone series by Micheal Grant (I prefer it over The Hunger Games, to be quite honest). I listen to a lot of music and have over 20 favorite artists, so I always have something to listen to. I have a lot of other hobbies, as well.
Overall, I have a pretty boring, but chaotic life. But, I have a lot of things that bring me joy and writing is at the top of the list. I know this article seemed pointless, but an introduction seemed to be the best topic, so here you go! Thank you for reading and I can’t wait to start posting more on Medium in the future!
