Why Bees? I have always believed in the tremendous power of words to empower communities, enact change, articulate differences, and turn the concept into reality. I studied journalism to learn how to wield words responsibly and, through my role as the Associate Editor at LexBlog, hope to apply what I learn to the legal publishing world.

Through exploration of different interests including journalism, outdoor recreation, fitness, cooking, and mental health–I often find myself asking the same questions: How can this space be more accessible to the most marginalized communities among us? What does equity mean in this space?

This blog is a space of learning and exploration. If you would like to read along as I apply these questions to various aspects of everyday life and the legal publishing world, then please feel free to follow along!
