My name is Danielle, I'm 17 and I live in New York, more specifically: on Long Island. I've been writing since I was about 11. It's always been my passion. Back then I used to write short stories, but now I'm more interested in writing poetry. I find it an easy way to express my emotions. I dealt with a lot growing up from living with a broken family, divorced parents, being bullied from kids in school, being emotionally and mentally abused by my parents as well as my siblings. I've developed depression in 7th grade, and anxiety and it lead to an eating disorder. I also just recently got out of an abusive relationship. Everything that I have been through you will see in my writing. I have a lot of emotions and thoughts that circle through my head, and poetry helps me organize them. I hope you read and enjoy my writing.
