Row

Hi there,

My name is Rowan, and I am a Journalism student at the University of King’s College in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I am a self-proclaimed dreamer, and am passionate about music and writing.

I love thinking about what the future holds, and making lists of all the things I hope to achieve. Someday I will travel the world. But for now, I'll daydream about faraway places I hope to visit, and the people I hope to meet.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope we will meet again soon!

Sincerely, Rowan

Be weird. Be kind. Be you.

My self-esteem and confidence levels have been pretty low lately. You may notice that even though I post pictures online all the time it’s rare for a photo of my face to make an appearance. The truth is, I’ve never been…

Welcome to my office (nook)
