Julissa and Miriam
About j u l i s s a
Returning for her second year in the sixth season of Girls Write Now DMP, Julissa Nuñez is a contender and heavyweight champion in all things literary inspired. At seventeen years old, she is on the cusp of leaping onto a whole new ocean that is college life. Her love of the written word and quirky rhetorical devices has propelled her to explore various mediums of self expression. What she wants to leave behind this year is a multimedia recollection of her growth not only as a writer but as a young adult.
