THE WOMAN BEHIND THE WORDS

Born and raised in South Florida, Emily Seggio is a first-generation Cuban-American and a student at the University of Central Florida studying Business Communications.

She published her first book at the age of seventeen entitled "Why We Play With Fire" and sold copies internationally.

Today, her anthology can be found through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other booksellers. However, this is far from the last of her literary ventures.

Working with a variety of online and print magazines, she aspires to perfect her craft by writing for platforms with unique audiences. Many describe her writing as social commentary, as she uses topics of controversy to call our preconceived cultural beliefs into question. She hopes to inspire readers to look inward and create meaningful ideological change.

On her days off, you'll find her enveloped in a perception-altering memoir, painting, or traveling the world with friends and family.

And sometimes, if you're lucky, you'll catch her on a late-night drive, seeking an adventure worth writing about.

WHY WE SHOULD TEACH OUR SONS ITS OKAY TO CRY

For too long, men have been taught to handle their emotions by withholding their tears with stoicism and self-reliance. But this cultural belief is a misguided attempt to encourage the display of synthetic strength, instead of fostering a safe environment for a catharsis to run its natural course and allow for genuine healing.
