Amanda Nicole Hirsch, born and raised in NYC and Israel, is soon to be 25. Minored in Writing at Ithaca College but have always loved it the most. I have been writing in journals or more shamefully- diaries since I was 7, still write daily, people around me think I’m a freak for it, but I just love memories. I have my own site- CatharticDiaries.com which is meant to just get everything that effervesces inside of me out there, hence Cathartic. “Not as Fucked up as I should be” is a 350 page Non-fiction insight into a F***’d up girl’s life who surprisingly has her shit together.
