So you want to know more about the girl behind the writing?
My name is Melissa and I’m a 22 year old student living in Montreal. I am many things, but at heart I’m just a girl trying to find her way through the world.
I love to travel, see live music, write (personally and professionally), read, and accomplish goals! I am addicted to social media, you can find me on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Linkedin as well as here, of course.I am an eternal optimist, regardless of my situation. I am constantly seeking a greater perhaps. (I use those words not as my own, but those of one of my favorite authors John Green, from his fantastic novel Looking for Alaska)
I work for a company that I love, selling and recommending books. One day, if I don’t end up in the music industry, I hope to pursue a career in publishing. Reading has been one of my greatest escapes ever since I was old enough to understand the words on a page. Harry Potter was somewhere around my beginning. I love to write about the books I read on my blog; you’ll often find me reviewing my favorites (and not-so-favorites if the opportunity arises). I am particularly fond of YA literature, biographies, and contemporary fiction.
I also work for an online music magazine based right out of my hometown called CONFRONT. I regularly interview musicians as they make their way through Montreal, and I later write articles about it! I have had the humbling opportunity of sitting down to talk with some of my favorite artists, and I wouldn’t trade those experiences for anything. I was interviewed on this blog about my job and my passion for music, so feel free to check it out!
I write about everything from travels, to goals, to my adventures with friends and family. I am inspired by my every day life to write pieces that will hopefully inspire you, too!
Last thing for now, please don’t take any of my work without permission, that is for both my writing and my personal photos. I love to guest post, you can always contact me about that! And I can always review products and books and music, feel free to check out my Sponsor Info page for more details!
E-mail me if you’ve got any questions, comments, but please no complaints. I don’t really care for those.
