Well, I finally did it! I made a blog. My mom (aka Suz, my best friend, my #1 supporter and voice of reason) has been encouraging me to create a place where I can share my thoughts and writing with the world. First, I would like to explain the name of this blog. Merriam Webster Dictionary defines the words “prominent” and “youth” as follows:
Prominent (prä-mə-nənt): standing out or projecting beyond a surface or line; readily noticeable; important.
Youth (yüth): the time of life when one is young; the early period of existence, growth, or development.
At this point in my life, it definitely seems like I am in an early period of existence, growth, and development. I am just learning how to navigate the adult world. However, I do believe that people my age can and should be heard. We are just as important as other adults. In fact, this is the time in our lives when we have the most energy and drive to make a difference. We are able bodied and open minded, and as life goes on those things seem to fade away. So, I thought a blog would be a great way to share my thoughts with the world! I hope you enjoy.
