Welcome to the Zine! A place where the Deprived team explores their own identities and shares their experiences with you! How can we ask for you to be vulnerable by speaking against the silence if we didn’t do it for ourselves? So here we are, shedding our tough skins until we become figuratively naked. Clear-cut: by exposing our own experiences, we hope that you acquire the courage to join the social dialogue!

Feminist Essays and Other Shit.
This isn’t everything, but it’s something. It’s a start at looking deeper into intersectionality, different types of Feminism, and why the *F* we need it.

Shayla, Anthology: Forever and Always

Loose yourself in the never-ending spiral of intimate and raw, creative writing by yours truly.

“I took to song writing as early as the 5th grade. Then lost myself in writing a plethora of un-finished novels in middle school. In high school, I was introduced to poetry. Now I dabble in creative writing, blog entries and academia publications!”

Since I’m always writing, there’s always a moment to share with y’all lovelies.
Don’t feel too deprived cause mama be giving it to you forever and always!
