Hey There!
Finding yourself is not really how it works. You aren’t a ten-dollar bill in last winter’s coat pocket. You are also not lost. Your true self is right here, buried under cultural conditioning, other people’s opinions and inaccurate conclusions you drew as a kid that became your beliefs about who you are. 'Finding yourself' is actually returning to yourself. An unlearning, an excavation, a remembering who you were before the world got its hands on you" -Emily McDowell

IRL: In Real Life | A Book of Poetry & Prose *FREE DOWNLOAD*

This past November made a year since I self-published my first book of poetry and prose. As a *very* late celebration, I made the book *free* for you all to read. I hope you enjoy!

In Real Life is a book of poems and prose that focuses on the coming of age as a woman and creating an identity for yourself despite how society tries to shape you.
