Hello and welcome! My name is Ty, I am the creator and founder of A Peace of Ty. I’m sure you came to this page to figure out a little bit more about me. In a nutshell I was inspired to do what I love: write.
Throughout my life writing was an outlet for me to express my inner most thoughts and feelings, and I’d like to think it saved my life. Growing up I was bullied for the way I looked and dressed which often made me contemplate my existence. While taking my life wasn’t the answer, I turned my hurt into passion and began writing poetry. It was in high school that I combined my love of poetry and public speaking and became a member of the speech team. I’d like to thank my speech coach Mrs. C for her countless time and energy she used to develop me into the speaker I am today.
So, that brings me to where I am now. After graduating from Creighton University (Go Jays) with my journalism degree I was inspired to do something that could help others. I knew I had a story to tell and that is when I thought of blogging. During my time at Creighton I dove into the world of social media. Quite frankly I’ve come to realize blogging is a great way to infiltrate the stories of others as well as the stories of myself.
With all that being said welcome to A Peace of Ty where we will strive to achieve peace by piece.
