About ericacherell

Hey y'all! My name is Erica Marshall and I'm a 22-year-old senior at Howard University studying Television Production and Swahili. Sounds cool, right? Lol I know, it's so much fun. I was born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina. I LOVE everything about the South, except for living there at this young and free time in my life. Despite being in DC for the past few years and taking on some of the habits of the people that live here, I'm still a Southern Belle at heart. I love good manners and southern hospitality. I love soul food. I love people-watching. I love small talk and I LOVE southern accents like mine. I love to sing. I love to read. I love to advocate for change. I LOVE GOD. I pray that this blog gives you the desire to draw closer to Christ. That's all for now :) Love y'all, Erica
