About Me

Welcome! I’m Daelyn, a Junior at Appalachian State University in the lovely Blue Ridge Mountains. I have a lot of opinions and a great way to share them with you, lovely reader, and I’m thankful to you for being a part of my community!

I’m 20 years old, and I know what you’re thinking: what on earth could a twenty-something possibly have to say about the world? Well, you’d be surprised. At a liberal-arts university, I’m exposed to dozens of new concepts every day. We’re pretty big on feminism up here, and I love looking at social media through a feminist lens. Everything from Twitter to the Oscars can be considered social media, and there are a lot of issues that aren’t being addressed to their fullest. I fully intend to change that.

I’m going to be writing about a multitude of issues from online activism to whitewashing, but the difference between my blog and others is that I’m not just slapping my opinion up on a page. I like to use evidence to support my opinions, and I hope that maybe I’ll be able to convince at least one person to look more closely at the myriad of problems present in our society. I’m glad you’ve decided to come on this journey with me!

Here’s my dog, Niblet, to convince you to stay.

Welcome to the family!
