About Page
I’m Kiersten – a 22-year-old feminist post-grad. with a penchant for debate, an absolute love of cats, and a soul that wishes it were better at creativity.  
 
I graduated in May, 2014 with a degree in Communications and Journalism that most would call useless, but I am convinced is absolutely full of possibilities.  It’s an education I wouldn’t trade for the world, and no matter what your education is in, I don’t think you should trade it either.
 

Because the fact is, your education and your beliefs are the only two things that nobody can take from you.  And trust me – they’ll try, but never let them.  

 
I may be finished with college, but I’m not entirely ready to give it up just yet.  I’m currently taking online classes to earn my Paralegal Degree, and by day I work in a law firm.  I love writing and photography, even though photography is a skill I can’t say I’m all that good at yet.  I spent years horseback riding from elementary school through early high-school, and I have a plan to get back into it as soon as possible, because I miss it more than you can imagine.  I’m an introvert, and I love to argue, which I know are two things that don’t go together very well.  Give me a delicious pumpkin bread loaf, and I’ll probably love you forever, or at least for a day. 
 
 

I launched She is Fierce in April of 2014, but this isn’t my first foray into the blogging world.  I started my first blog – a sad little experiment in social community and failed 365 photography projects – with my best friend in our senior year of high-school.  We wrote about the everyday struggles of a high-school senior, our favorite authors (ie: Augusten Burroughs), and anything else that popped into our heads that night.  Since then, I’ve blogged off and on for about five years throughout a few different blogs, but She is Fierce is the first one I’ve buckled down and really cared about.  

Technically, She is Fierce is a Lifestyle Blog, but I try to stay away from blogging about my life without any meaning or takeaway, and you’ll definitely never find any kind of “style” here.  Instead, this blog is a place for meaning, for inspiration, and for debate.  I blog about feminism, current events, creative writing, beliefs, and meaning all in the form of personal essays that make you think about what you believe.  
 

I want you to navigate away from here inspired to know your beliefs, think more deeply, and to gain a better understanding of the world around you.  I want to inspire you to look at the way you live your life, and why.

I’m so glad you’re here, and I can’t wait to build something together!
