My name is Anya V. Francis and I am a South Florida native. I went to Syracuse University where I graduated with my B.A. in English and then went on to receive a Master’s and J.D. from Nova Southeastern University. It literally still surprises me when I say that I’m a licensed attorney. I’m team #awkwardblackgirl, a casual boxing fan (what you should take from that is that I like to watch boxing interviews, the showtime specials, and the big fights on PPV), a repeat customer of Pretty Little Thing and until now an extremely private individual. My worst trait is the doubled headed monster of insecurity and pride. I really enjoy playing pool although I’m horrendous, care entirely too much about what people think of me, and I’m regarded as a “nice person” by those who know me (whatever that means). I started this blog as a creative outlet and to follow – up on a dream of working for a magazine. Here’s to coming out the other side a better person.
