My name is Emmy, Em for short. Simply, I am a storyteller and writer. I am currently a graduate student at the University of Missouri, studying Magazine Editing. I received my bachelor’s of journalism from the University of Missouri in December 2020. Throughout my career thus far as a journalist, I have worked for Bloomberg News covering municipal finance, as managing editor for Vox Magazine, as an editorial intern for Modern Luxury: Chicago, among others. I have the heart of a midwesterner and the passion of a storyteller. Through my blog, I share anything from my adventures and outlooks on life to trends and crafty ideas.

I believe life should be lived so colorfully. Life is a blank canvas and it’s your job to paint your story. Whether it is through adventures or a new perspective, I hope you find my blog to inspire you to create your life to be colorful through all your endeavors. At the end of the day, life is simple; it’s what you make out of it.

Quick takes about me:

  • I believe journalism is a passion to be pursued.
  • Coffee is always a must.
  • I am a war history junkie and avid reader. Whether it’s readingĀ Going After Cacciato by Tim O’Brien orĀ Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly, if I am reading it’s most likely a war tale.
  • I bleed Mizzou black and gold.
  • I consider myself to be a combination of country twang and city chic.
  • I LOVE grammar.
