If you’re reading this, it means I’ve figured out how to keep my WordPress afloat, which is an accomplishment in itself.
My name is Rose Flood and I’ve been a writer as long as I can remember. In December 2017, I received a bachelor’s degree in public relations at Ball State University. My past experience includes working as a member of the Race Marketing team at Harrah’s Hoosier Park Racing & Casino and as an Account Coordinator at Cardinal Communications, Ball State’s student-run strategic communications firm.
I’m not exaggerating when I say I’ve been a writer for my entire life. In elementary school, I would write stories during free time that would be passed around from classmate to classmate, so it makes sense that I landed in public relations. The things I write today may be drastically different from a series about talking pies I wrote when I was 11 (yes, that’s a thing that my classmates loved) but writing is something I still feel passionate about.
As I made my shift from college student to professional woman, I learned that my voice can really mean something. I’ve turned myself into an advocate for speaking out about mental health and am not afraid to talk about my experience as a sexual assault survivor. I try to keep my voice on this blog light as well, but I’ve learned that my words have power and I have zero intention of silencing myself.
I was joking with one of my bosses from Hoosier Park about secretly being tough, and his response was, “Dynamite comes in small packages.” I am dynamite. I can sit straight and quietly when I need but when the fuse is lit I won’t hold back, especially with my words.
If you ever relate to anything I write, no matter the content, please don’t hesitate to reach out. You can email me through my contact page and you can find me on Twitter and Instagram @RoseMags_.
In my best “The Princess Diaries” voice that would make Julie Andrews proud: thank you for being here today.
