About the Author

Kira Whitehand

An introverted extrovert who wants to be a journalist, but also a marketer; still trying to pinpoint my passion. If only astrology was real and could tell me what I should be doing. I wake up and fall asleep to music, so if I end up writing about it too you'll know I'm happy. Maybe not as happy as when I see a puppy, but pretty close. I find creative people the most interesting, so interviewing and writing their stories is so intriguing to me. Also, it could lead to backstage passes, so my priorities are definitely in the right order. I always get a wave from my local bubble tea lady as I pass by. She passes the vibe check.
