Rebecca Donaldson

Rebecca Donaldson is a confessional poet, PhD student in Positive Developmental Psychology, and a Speech-Language Pathologist. For her, writing is a medium of self-expression in which she can be open, honest, and reflective about the mud in her life and the flowers which grow from it. She attempts to be raw with the world as she is with her friends and disowns all labels of mental illness. She is a human being, a researcher, and a dancer of Brazilian Forrô. Rebecca is currently in the process of writing her first book, which will be released this coming year.
