Miss Independent is a pseudonym for a twenty-something aspiring human rights lawyer, who enjoys reading, traveling, sweet wine, and meaningful conversation. This page serves as a platform to share experiences, perspectives, and sense of solidarity to readers who may also find themselves attempting to unravel precisely what it means to be a citizen of this seemingly troubled world. My hope is that at least one of these pieces will provide my audience a glimpse of hope, a sentiment of empowerment, or simply bring to light a few ways in which we can all make this shared universe a better place.
