I am currently 16 years of age, working toward turning my life around. I have been into drugs and other things in the past due to poor decisions. Currently I am going to school, working toward a collage degree, although still unsure of what it is I wish to do. I currently practice Writing and Graphic Design. I am not a professional, nor do I consider myself so, but I do love to try my hardest when it comes to these things. I am willing to work for low prices, I am currently just looking for extra cash and something to keep myself busy while having fun.
