About Alexandria Roswick

Hello there! My name is Alexandria. I’ve been writing on Medium since March of 2021. I am a twenty-seven-year-old New England native currently living in Northern Wyoming. I am a Blogger for a nonprofit organization, Say It Loud (UK), and the founder of Eternal Metamorphosis — a personal blog that focuses on the stories of survivors of sexual violence. Over the course of my first year on Medium, I have worked with several publications that focus on amplifying the voices of women in particular.

Writing has always been a passion of mine, but there was about a ten-year phase in my life where I abandoned it completely. This was due to trauma from several abusive relationships and compounded depression as a result of undiagnosed ADHD. Thankfully, last year I was able to discover my true purpose — writing to heal myself and empower others.

In my personal writing, I concentrate on feminism, cultural commentary, healing from trauma, and self-discovery. My aim is always to broaden minds and encourage compassion and purposeful action. As my goals for publishing and promotion have grown exponentially since last March, I am prepared to step into the role of an Editor. I am so excited to begin working with the writers of Modern Women!

About Gillian Annie

Hi! My name is Gillian Annie :) I am a retired Army officer working on figuring life out. After my mental health collapsed at West Point, I decided to become a Mental Health advocate, sharing my story about my struggles with bipolar disorder on Medium. This has been very therapeutic as I’ve been able to open up to my family about what I’ve been going through. I am a happy dog (and cat, too, I guess) mom and big sister. I am going to be attending Duke in the fall to pursue a Master’s in Russian culture. Hopefully you will all be hearing more about Russian culture from me soon!

Thank you to Megan Llorente for providing me this opportunity to be a new co-editor for Modern Women. I am so excited to be working for you to spread information about mental health and how it relates to women.

Here’s a link to my About on Medium (I don’t have an About Me article — yet):

Thank you again to our entire Modern Women community for being so supportive and encouraging. We look forward to continuing with that awesome energy through our expanded editing team!

With love,
Megan & the Modern Women team
