Write, Pray, Love

4 years ago Risa Mond 0

Have you ever truly thought about how powerful that one word is? Writing can be private or public. A place to let out all your feelings, show your talent of poetry, or get the news out about a recent event to inform the world. To some, writing is a chore, but to others, it’s how one can fully express themselves.

My name is Risa Mond. I’m 18 years old, past member and leader in CTeen, and now current employee. I had the incredible privilege of being a writer for CTeen Connection for the past few years. And now, I have an even bigger honor of being the Managing Editor.

I can’t imagine my years of CTeen without being on the CTeen Connection staff. Not only have my articles been published and shared thousands of times on the blog, Times of Israel, and Buzzfeed, but I got to be a part of the special Connection family. I’ve met amazing teens with the love for writing, blogging, and CTeen just like me.

Why are we called CTeen Connection? Because through the power of our writing and the right use of social media, we connect all 261 cities, 23 countries, and 6 continents filled with chapters. We give the world a taste of what we have to say; we share the CTeen pride.

If you’re hesitant to join because you think: “Maybe writings not my thing, maybe I won’t be good at it.” Let me give you some advice: Don’t be. Over the past years I’ve seen myself and other teens grow in their confidence, writing ability, and diligence to multitask school, the blog, and everything else on a teenagers mind.

Now if there is one thing I can’t stress enough: If you have the slightest interest in joining- do it! You won’t regret it.

Cheers to an incredible year!
