Consider with Melissa Mitchell
3 Describe a memory that makes you feel joy.
3 Being a little girl and diving into the ocean in Sagaponack with my twin sister. We were fearless. Fearlessness is an emotion I am forever chasing, trying to tap back into.
4 What is a meaningful keepsake you own?
4 My grandfather gifted my sister and I gold nameplate necklaces when we were born. As a twin, it certainly serves a purpose, but I've also just grown so fond of having this piece. It feels like a part of me. As we grew up, he gave us name rings, earrings, and jewelry boxes when we graduated high school. I barely take them off and chuckle when I find myself wearing them all together. Yes, I'm filling the trope of being "from long island.”
5 What makes you feel self-conscious?
5 Sharing the poetry I write can make me feel self-conscious and vulnerable... but at the same time, it's an adrenaline rush that I am never disappointed with.
