Hello! My name is Shakayla Lee.

Utterly vested in my passion for storytelling, I find that my ultimate interest is the (seldom highlighted) trials and triumphs of the black woman. As a college student, at the University of Florida, I am in the beginning stages of my journey. Like most, within each passing day I am taking the steps to become who I am meant to be.
