If a picture was worth a thousand words, I'd rather be the one to write those words, than to be the one in the picture. -Jaquetta Chamblee

Jaquetta Chamblee believes that words are the most lethal yet underestimated form of weaponry when referencing battle strategy. As -Edward Bulwer-Lytton states, "The pen is mightier than the sword."

Currently a student at North Carolina Central University, Jaquetta is studying to become a successful writer, journalist, mediator and inspirational speaker. Her love for writing was developed back in elementary school and she has been on a constant journey to refine her talent and share her stories.

"Writers are the exorcists of their own demons". -Mario Vargas-Llosa

Growing up with a family history of anger disorders, Jaquetta's childhood was filled with negativity, depression, anxiety and other mental/ emotional challenges. At the tender age of sixteen , she decided that she no longer wished to live a life filled with anger and began her journey of enlightenment using the written word to share heart-felt stories filled with inspirational lessons and optimistic outcomes.

"Holding on to anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die." -Buddha

Jaquetta is currently a contributor for both pickthebrain.com and motivationfordreamers.com. She has also been recently verified as an author of selfgrowth.com. Jaquetta has also launched her own blog entitled anoptimistspen. It is a literary-lifestyle blog dedicated to personal well-being and self-improvement with a focus on positivity, inspiration, balance, and happiness.
