My name is Emilia Rivera and I am a recent graduate of the University of Bridgeport, where I studied Creative Writing along with Business Administration and Modern Languages. Since I was a little girl, I have been astounded by words and the picture they create within a story. With the love of writing, it is no surprise that I found myself diving deeper into developing my craft in writing anything from short stories to critics on movies and books I have come in contact with over the years. Although I have a passion for writing, I have also dabbled in singing, dancing and fashion. Growing up in New York, I have learned so much about the city, but there is definitely still room for more understanding of the city and its growth. From the food to the entertainment, New York is a place where all cultures can share commonalities and differences to expand our knowledge.
