Hi! I’m Myka,

A developing writer and aspiring journalist.

Sun Beige Blog is for real truths and the significant aspects of what I've learned as I grow through society and leave my footprint. My posts will cover a broad amount of topics about my experiences and advice. It is a place for my subscribers and viewers to feel safe and respond to posts that are relatable to them.

I have always been passionate about writing, ever since I was younger I would write fictional stories and read all day long. I've continued to do that as I grew into an adult and would like to turn my childhood hobby into a career. This is only the beginning, and I want to use my blog to express my opinions about many topics that I believe are important. I am here to talk about mental health, body image, relationships, school, and my transition into adulthood. 


Here's a bit about myself. I am a student at the University of Minnesota Duluth and I was born in Minneapolis, Mn. I was raised in Georgia for many years and then moved back to Minneapolis as a teenager. I am 21 years old, an Aries (yes I believe in astrology), and a a lot of fun. I love taking pictures, reading, writing, and I can be a social butterfly only when I feel like it. I am a plus size girl and I love dressing up and trying new places in the city. 

That's all you'll need to know for now, and if you want to know more keep reading and subscribe! Thanks for stopping by.
