She is a vibrant, young, promising college student with a ‘voice’ that makes you feel like you are sitting across from her at a coffee shop having a chat.  Her writing style is fun, comfortable, confident and she is a riot!  Oh and did I mention she has curly hair?  I’m a fan of curly hair.  Watch for her and her curly hair, I’m sure you will be seeing more of her in the years to come!
