My name is Preston Leon Chalmers, Jr. and I am a 20 year old college student at ITT Technical Institute. Writing is a strong passion of mines, with the exception of computer engineering. When I was a Junior in High School, I participated in the high school newspaper/journalism team. I was responsible for the Freelance writing portion of the paper. I covered topics that subjected the teenage social life; things such as bullying, homosexuality, gangs, drugs, ***, and music. A moment that really impacted my life was when the principal of the school had rejected a piece that myself and few other members of my group had wrote together dealing with homosexuality and homophobia. He had said that the piece was too controversial and inappropriate for school purposes. My teacher, Mr. Chapin, whom was a strange, but brilliant writer, had commended us for the piece, and is really the reason why I am so determined to break barriers with my writing.
Upon graduating Huguenot High School in 2011, I am Certified with Microsoft Word 2007. I have maximum experience with Word, PowerPoint, and minimum experience with Excel. The first college I attended was J. Sergeant Reynolds Community where I majored in Liberal Arts/Mass Communications. I did not complete my course, due to my effort to begin working for family issues. Nevertheless, I went back and switched my major to Information Technology.
On my spare time, I like to record and write music. I have been doing music since I was 8 years old. I am songwriter as well, and I have written Hip-Hop/R&B songs for local acts around my neighborhood and other parts of Richmond, VA. So if anyone needs a song written or a jingle for a commercial, feel free to contact me.
I am destined to making a living and a future out of my writing. Whether it be with music, television, movies, and/or journalism, I want people to not just read my writing, but understand the passion behind and where my opinions and statements derive from.
