Today we’re joined by Attina. Attina is a young up and coming writer. She specializes in poetry, but has dabbled in narratives too. Attina is an incredibly passionate writer, as you’ll soon read. My thanks to her for taking the time to participate in this interview.
Please, tell us about your art.
My writing is a mix of poetry and a narrative or one or the other.
What inspires you?
The hardships and happiness in my life.
What got you interested in your field? Have you always wanted to be an artist?
I’ve always wanted to be a writer but I’ve never known how to get to that level of writing.
What advice would you give young aspiring artists?
To everyone, not just artists, is that we may be at rock bottom now with nothing left but now we can only go up.
Where on the spectrum do you identify?
I am questioning.
Have you encountered any kind of ace prejudice or ignorance in your field? If so, how do you handle it?
I have but I always pick my head back up because my sister once told me when I was in the worst part of my life, “Pick up your head, baby, the crown slips and a crown is always placed on those who can handle the hardships.”
What’s the most common misconception about asexuality that you’ve encountered?
That asexuality doesn’t have a spectrum.
What advice would you give to any asexual individuals out there who might be struggling with their orientation?
“Pick up your head, baby, the crown slips and a crown is always placed on those who can handle the hardships.”
Thank you, Attina, for participating in this interview and this project. It’s very much appreciated.
