Tiffany Hopkins | Contributing Writer
My name is Tiff, but I think it’s really freaking cool when people refer to me as Tiffyhop. I created that name for myself on Twitter when Tiffhop was already taken, and I stuck with it because it has a nice little ring. I guess I’m just like other black people, always creating silly nicknames for themselves.
Anyways, that’s enough about my name, onto more info about ME. Only because I may be the best thing that will ever happen you.
I’m a 22-year-old journalism student at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State University, and I’ll be a super senior this fall (please don’t judge, because I have no problem with the fact that I had to watch all of my classmates graduate while I sat alone, crying in the crowd.) Jk, that never happened…or did it?
So far, college has been a whirl wind for me, and like most college kids, it has pushed me to do some major soul searching. I’m keeping it very real when I say, “I went from being a shallow, plastic diva, to being an earthy weirdo chick.” I’d like to thank Oprah Winfrey, Lady Gaga and Beyonce for showing me their beautiful ways.
For the past two years I’ve viciously dedicated my life to writing, and I’m all about sharing things with the world that I believe to be true. I talk about anything that my little wandering mind thinks is relevant to life (and that includes a lot, so don’t you worry.)
That’s pretty much where I am as a writer, trying to make my way and help other peeps out while I do it. Ps…keep all negative vibes away from me, I preach that positive shit!
