   My name is Damaris A. Bonarrico, and I am a graduate from the University of Central Florida. Class of 2019, Writing and Rhetoric major and Anthropology minor. 

     Did I always wanted to be a writer? No, but I always knew I was meant to be one. I tried many things in my career, such as Biology, Nursing and even Entrepreneurship. Not that I failed in any of those fields, but I did not get the fulfillment that I get from writing. 

     Throughout my childhood, I would write sketches for my dad's radio show, and would perform them with my friends. As I started getting older, my passion for writing started to increase. During high school, I composed a play, which was performed by the drama department. I did not do any of these things to complete a writing career, but because I knew I was good at it and it made me feel accomplished.

     It wasn't until 2017, when I realized what I wanted to do for the rest of my life: write. I switched my major from Biology to Writing and Rhetoric, and started to exercise my gift from there on. I was able to get an internship with the Osceola News-Gazette and pushed myself to graduate almost a year before estimated time. 

     Soon I will be relocating to Las Vegas, Nevada. Using my talent and skills wherever God takes me.

     Some people might think of writing as a lost art, since we live in a world full of visual technology, but I don't. I think of writing as the way we think, the stories we have to tell, and the souls we wish to reach.
