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.
The Salvation Army is once again looking for at least 30 volunteers to "Keep the Pot Boiling" for the upcoming holiday season.
