My name is Gabriela. I’m a writer, a photographer, and a believer in forgiveness. My goal is to finish college with my BSBA in brand marketing, and pursue a career in advertising. I’m a survivor of many types of abuse, which often comes up in my writing. I write freely here. I use this blog as a means of communication between myself and those important to me. I offer a trigger warning to those uncomfortable reading about abuse, violence, self-harm, and depression. This blog is my safe space. I find solace in turning my innermost (and often confusing) thoughts into coherent pieces of writing.
