Hi, your favorite person ever here, Dee! On a fairly regular basis, I will be posting blogs about my life, so I hope you enjoy reading them! This first blog is an introduction to the posts which are to come, and I hope that you will continue to follow me in this journey.
Welcome everybody to my first post for From the Mind of Deanna. I attend Opportunity Networks on Wednesdays and Thursdays, but I really can’t wait to be able to go all week, because I have the opportunity to be myself there. I can express myself in my own way, and my friends (staff and program participants) there are very supportive of my goals and dreams.
My dream of becoming a writer started with an interest in photography. I thought that explaining photos that I took would help readers understand the meaning behind my photos. After a while, my passion for writing took the spotlight, and photography became a nice complement to that.
Someday I want to compile a book of short stories that I have written, and Opportunity Networks staff and program participants can act as peer editors to provide feedback before I publish my work. I have felt such a high level of support with Opportunity Networks up to this point, and I can visualize my book being reviewed, edited, and sent to be published!
Until next time, keep dreaming, night and day.
