Hello! Welcome to my little corner of the world. I’m Amy, and you’ve just stumbled upon my musings and meditations.
The thought of describing myself is entirely overwhelming, because I am not just one thing. I never have been. I’ve always been too much, too loud, too all over the show to be packaged up easily. I am notoriously difficult to pin down. It’s hard to box myself in to just a few descriptive words, when I view myself as a vast multitude of dreams, infinite moments, places, thoughts, songs, poems and people – an abundant collection of memories and experiences, love and heartbreak, thoughts, theories, commentary and stories.
I am many things, and this brief introduction is just the start. I am a writer, artist, producer and entrepreneur with a passion for storytelling. I’m an advocate for social and racial justice, equity and I am dedicated to the expressions of these things though writing, poetry, artistry and advocacy.
My educational background is in Film & Media Production and Gender Studies. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Film Studies and Gender Studies, with distinction, from the University of Cape Town. I am now pursuing my BA Honours in Interdisciplinary Arts and Culture Studies, at the University of Witwatersrand, melding together all my multidisciplinary artistic endeavours. I also work as a freelance creative strategist and copywriter, and have for a number of years now. I have done work for social media and branding clients. And I have worked with a marketing agency on copywriting for their clients.
Hopefully this little blog, this collection of my thoughts and musings, will come to show who I am and what I stand for. This blog functions both as an online documentation of some of my work. But it is in many ways a collative platform through which I can share my dreams, thoughts and ideas.
My pronouns are she/they.
Artist. Writer. Producer. Adventurer.
Lover of beautiful things.
Yours with love, Amy.
