Tamara Jennings


I am from the Philadelphia area, and graduated from University of Massachusetts with a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice with minor studies in Psychology. I am the proud author of a large collection of personal journals and incomplete short stories that have been in the works for many years. However, I discovered a deeper desire to communicate by writing in college, from various literature/psychology/crime classes that truly broadened my level of thinking and lead to some great discussions. Aside from these topics, I also love to write about/discuss anything involving lifestyle, health/wellness/beauty, world cultures and travelling, just to name a few. Among my other interests/loves are photography, real estate/home décor, nature (love hiking, plants and being outdoors), animals (cat person here 😊), and dancing (I love salsa 😊). I also love to travel and look forward to doing more of it soon. I especially enjoy traveling to NYC whenever I get a chance, as there is always a new experience to be had. I specifically appreciate the city during fall and winter, as NYC has the most striking display of the changing seasons in Central Park. I also find that the city has much to offer in terms of “holiday spirit” during Christmas/New Year.

But keep reading, and you will find there are plenty of ways to not only cope, but flourish, during this transition.
