Founder and President
In May of 2022, for my Eagle Project in Scouts, I created a curriculum and taught creative writing workshops to students at an underserved elementary school in DC. Watching their growth over the course of the workshops was incredible, and I could see their writing and their passion for writing develop. While they had first been so reluctant to write, by the end of the workshops, the students were eagerly writing down and bringing to life memories, experiences, plays, poetry, and stories. The experience opened my eyes to the power of writing in building self-expression and communication, especially in youth. I also had the opportunity to work with Free Minds in February of 2022, a nonprofit that helps incarcerated persons interact with poetry. This work gave me insight into how writing can lead to positive change in communities, so I created Write to Right teach underserved communities creative writing as a tool towards social change.
Tara is a tenth grader at Sidwell Friends School in Washington, DC. She's been writing for as long as she can remember and has always loved language. She focuses on poetry, creative nonfiction, and flash fiction. Her work has been recognized by many publications and has earned a variety of accolades. In her free time, she enjoys camping with her Scouts troop, hiking with her dog, and playing soccer on her school's varsity team. Writing for her has been and continues to be a journey of self-transformation and discovery, and she is committed to giving others that same experience.
