Amanda Gaines

Hello! I am a twenty-two year old writer from North Carolina, and a recent graduate of Wingate University. Although I am a Biology major and science nerd by trade, I take shelter in several creative outlets. Writing poetry has been a cherished form of self-expression since I was in elementary school, serving as an ideal vessel to channel the thoughts ever-buzzing around my head. As of late, I have found that inspiration is typically not discovered; it tends to find me in the most unexpected ways.

I am an admirer of nature, an examiner of the human spirit, and a servant of the heart. I write in the hope that my words will help others find direction, or simply some comfort in knowing someone out there is just as lost as they are.

I hope you enjoy my ramblings!
