Hey, I’m Valerie!
One of my core beliefs is that acting from as deep and as vulnerable a place as possible is what matters in the long run. This reflects in my writing: I write personal essays about sticky, taboo topics that people don’t normally talk about -- think jealousy of fellow creatives or feeling like a failure for not winning at the status game.
I code, air fry random foods, and buy tons of exotic clearance fruits from my local grocery stores, but writing is what really makes me come alive. If you enjoy what you read or have a thoughtful perspective to share, feel free to comment on my Substack or send me a DM on Twitter. I’d love to hear from you!
