  • Was there a distinct moment when you knew exactly what you wanted to do with your life/career?

    Not at all. It’s still constantly changing honestly! I have far too many passions and interests - it’s a blessing and a curse.

    Usually I’m one who finds solace in finite plans, but this year has really shown me (and us all, really) that that just doesn’t exist, does it? It’s forcing me to be more comfortable with uncertainty. Right now, I am just so grateful to have a stable job and my health.

    What would you say ultimately drives your passion for your work?

    I’ve always had a love for photography and, being a very image-driven industry, I think it makes sense I am drawn to this way of story-telling.

    Morning routine…

    I *try* to walk and/or run first thing in the morning. I find it a nice way to clear my head - free from my phone, tv, etc.

    While doing my morning skincare routine, I make a cup of hot lemon water and throw on my morning playlist. After that comes the coffee - which I drink far too much than I should admit.

    Book or podcast you recommend in the name of motivation or self-growth…

    Everyone should read The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business. It was such a life-changing book for me and really helped me identify what areas in my life I wasn’t happy with.

    Another favorite is You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life. If you are doubting yourself or at a crossroads, this is the book for you!

  • Hey Devri! Tell us a little about yourself & your journey.

    My name is Devri and I am a writer and editor based in New York City, originally from Texas. Ihave worked in the editorial world for about a decade now, and I am super thankful for loving this life I have cultivated and worked so hard for. I also have a rare autoimmune disease called Takayasu’s Arteritis which affects only 1 in every 2 to 3 million people.

    You've taken a rare condition that you deal with daily, Takayasu's Arteritis, and
    have used it on your platform to empower others... Can you touch on this?

    I was diagnosed when I was 20 years old - it was a life changer for sure. As a writer, a creative, a woman, and a woman of color living with something so rare, I could never not incorporate it into my everyday life and content because it is something I experience on a daily basis and have had to navigate through with challenges.

    How are you taking in all that's happening right now while pushing to continue

    I take it day by day. Some days are easier than others. In the first two months of quarantine, I was devastated. Through it all, I’ve been able to keep working and staying busy, so that’s been good. I also have spent a lot of much needed alone time that I don’t think I would’ve given myself if the pandemic hadn’t happened. Read more
