You might’ve noticed that I’ve decided to move away from the ‘Little Girl with a Big Pen’ moniker and toward my own name. Over the last month or so, I’ve changed my Facebook page, my Twitter handle, and now my domain and blog name.
When I started this blog in September of 2009, I felt unsure of myself. The ‘little girl’ description seemed to encompass my need to grow up, and the blog was a documentation of my coming-of-age, in a way. It was also a little reverent – maybe I was small (in stature), and maybe I was a ‘girl’ (a group whose voices aren’t ordinarily highly valued), but I had things to say and an outlet to do so. A soapbox of my own making.
