Harvey A. Huggins
When we are young, we often do not recognize our own talents. I was a perfect example of that. At 11-years-old, when I was in the sixth grade, I noticed that my classmates always seemed excited and somewhat overly attentive when it was my turn to read my original short stories to the class. I used to think, “What’s all the fuss about?” Over the years, it didn’t take long for me to realize that English was a strong subject for me and my ability to write well was definitely above average.
Writing is like anything else. The more you practice, the better you get. As I matured, going from high school to college to graduate school, I continued to write. During my first year of college, I became entertainment editor of the newspaper and during my senior year in undergraduate school, I was staff writer for the newspaper at Cal State, Los Angeles. I studied nearly every type of writing from creative to journalistic to persuasive, becoming more skilled as I got older. At the age I am today, I find my maturity is incorporated into my writing with little effort. I graduated from Cal State, L.A. with a Bachelor’s degree in journalism
As a visual artist (I hold a Master’s degree in fine art), my writing niche focuses on writing for the arts and fashion. However, I also enjoy writing for travel and lifestyle, and my background as a medical transcriptionist makes me a good candidate for medical and health-related writing.
