About Rose

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.
