Meet the founder

profilepicHi, I’m August, the founder of Survival is a Talent. I enjoy reading, sweets, and warm weather. I am a student and mental illness advocate. I also do freelance writing and social media managing.  You can find my work on The Mighty, Thought Catalog, Defying Shadows, PuckermobThe Odyssey Online, and Niume. My poetry was published in the 2014 edition of Georgia State’s Undergraduate Art and Literary Journal called Underground. A story about my life with schizophrenia has been published in Volume 2 of The i’Mpossible Project. You can pre-order it now. It will be in stores November 2017. You can connect with me on LinkedIn, Twitter, and her personal blog.
