In my junior year of high school I took an independent study course called TPSP, or the Texas Performance Standards Project. Half of the school year was dedicated to research and the second half to developing a product based on research. Students are encouraged to pursue passions that they hope to follow throughout their career. I wrote and published a book, Running Through Darkness, and also presented my research and product in an hour long presentation to a panel of professional judges with an audience of friends and family.
My book is still available for purchase on any e-reader platform for $0.99.
I started a blog, Paper and Coffee, my freshman year at The University of Oklahoma and have continued to write periodically. It covers writing, planners, and obviously paper and coffee. The photo above is the original design I created. It has continued to evolve with changing design styles and my age and experience.
