My name is Aariona Harris. I’m an English literature major with plans to take my degree to law school. I’m 24 years old, and I’ve been in love with literature since I could understand it. Writing has always been something private and safe I’ve kept to myself, but after my mom passed I found that I didn’t want to write just for me. I wanted to write for her, and I wanted to be a safe place for any and everyone who’s gone through the horror of grief due to losing a loved one. I know what it’s meant to me, to read something and understand that I’m not alone in my pain. I want to give that to others.
