Location icon United States

Hi there! I'm Kelly Nicole Barahona, a New York City lady in her mid-20s with a whimsical written voice.

Animation has a soul (or an "anima" for the 1/2 Italian like me). Writing about happenings in the animation world -- films to screenings to panels -- is a passion of mine.

I also volunteer my time in the community in adult education and provide my talents in the grant writing/research and non-profit fields.

Honestly though, if it involves writing, I'm always willing to put in the work to make the piece as strong as can be.

Adapting a book is not brand-new territory in the animation world. A lot of movies, shorts, and cartoon shows are based on pre-existing literature from poems to graphic novels.

(Blogger's note: Hey, I didn't die, I swear! Things have been going on in my life that I had to take control of. I have been watching movies throughout these past few months, I just haven't posted any reviews for any of them yet, haha.

Kelly Barahona's English 35600 Portfolio

Welcome to my English 35600 Writing Portfolio! If the Romantic era of literature is to be considered one that encapsulated a wide array of emotions, sensations, and experiences, then I suppose one could consider me a Romantic poet aspirant. Admittedly, I have hardly begun my journey as a writer of any sort.
