My name is Anjelica.

I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Humanities, with concentrations in Literature & Writing and Social Science, and a minor in Anthropology. I also have a Master’s Degree in Creative Writing and Literature. My Master’s Thesis was a novel entitled Interlibrary Loaned: The Leaving Girl.  It is the story of a girl named Abbie, and it is told through her diary entries. Abbie is brilliant, and she and her family move every year. Her little brother makes friends everywhere, but Abbie minds the interruptions in her education, and does not make friends because she knows that she will have to leave them at the end of the year. But this year, Abbie has to make friends, because next year is the last new school she will be entering. Over the course of the year, she not only learns how to make friends, and how to be a child, but she also learns the truth about her mother, who only looks out the window.

My memoir, Hunger & Thirst, is about my experience with chronic illness, and what it is like to live with incurable illnesses. It is told in small sections, and is not ordered chronologically.
