Sade Swift
16-year-old participant in Girls Write Now

I am 16 years old and attend Beacon High School, and am a first-year mentee at Girls Write Now. I spend most of my time writing, participating in anything from leadership programs to law series, and doing school work -- leaving very little time for anything else. I dream of becoming a traveling journalist, in hopes of discovering my own truths in the world. My favorite genre of writing is poetry because it allows me to express what I would never dare say out loud, in a creative and metaphoric way. I have been published in national anthologies six times and look to continue my role in letting my voice be heard today, tomorrow and always! I aspire to exceed my expectations!
