A native Houstonian in and out, I snagged my Bachelor’s degree from the home of the Mean Green – The University of North Texas and earned my Masters degree from West Texas A&M University, and now teach the future of America as a high school English teacher.

So being an English teacher, I guess it makes perfect sense as to why I wanted to create a blog. I obviously love writing and have loved it for as long as I can remember. Growing up, I had notebooks and notebooks filled songs, television, movie scripts, and short stories. My love for writing has been a form of transformative expression for me and has been an escape of the mundanity of life.  Fast forward a few years later, and here I am with 50 Shades of Raee!

I named this space 50 Shades of Raee, not only as a play on the novel but because I am constantly evolving into a different version of myself or ‘shades‘ of my self, day by day. I want to share my experiences, lessons, and self with you in this moment, right here!

I created this space to be an open arena where we all can learn and grow from and with each other. Here, I’ll be sharing my life experiences and pieces of myself with the intent of helping you!

So again, I’m Raeven — the woman behind everything on this blog. This blog is a reflection of me, my life, and everything that inhabits it. I hope you enjoy it just as much as I will!
