Hi! I’m Melissa Sirois, and These words are my own is my little space on the Internet. It’s where I express myself, share my work and write about things that inspire me.
Who am I, you ask? What am I all about?
For starters, I’m a student– a journalism major at Quinnipiac University, to be exact. I have a minor focus in psychology, and I also dabble in public relations and digital design.
When I’m not in class or doing homework, I’m usually bouncing between two part-time jobs and trying to maintain some semblance of a social life. Students everywhere can understand this struggle, I’m sure.
I’m a self-identified conservative, but I have a few liberal tendencies. I’m Type A by nature, which is a blessing and a curse. I’m someone who feels a strong connection to her roots; I care about where my family comes from and the values that they have instilled in me.
I believe in hard work, not hand-outs. I’ve loved to read for as long as I can remember. I’d like to take a solo trip abroad someday. I’m interested in fashion and women’s issues. And I have a passion for learning.
I’ve tried my best to make this blog feel like a home on the Internet– if not for you, then at least for me– and I hope it can be appreciated and enjoyed as such.
Interested in reaching out? Let’s connect! I’d love to hear from you (:
