Born and raised in Knoxville, Tennessee, I grew up on the Word of God and a mason jar full of sweet iced tea. I am currently studying as an English Education major in hopes of teaching children one day. I run a small, home bakery called "Alissa's Home Bakery." (Creative names is NOT one of my skills). I am an avid reader and have a deep love for studying literature. In addition to literature, I also enjoy studying history. Whether they be in books, history lessons, or the poor guy who has to listen to me ramble in the waiting room, I love people. I write because I want to share my personal knowledge and because I want to find any excuse for a good research project. You can count on all of my articles being accurate and up to date. I always do extensive research on my topics to provide you with the best possible content.
