Things About Me

My name is Amy Reding. I am a 25 year old freelance writer born and raised in Calgary, Canada. I feel like I reside all over the place (but usually I bounce between Maui and Canada).

I graduated in 2017 with a Bachelor of Communication Studies and a minor in Print Journalism. Oddly enough, the only time I worked a traditional ‘journalism job’ was when I lived in Mongolia and interned at their English newspaper. (No, I don’t speak Mongolian).

Right now I spread my time between my family, my passions, and this blog. In August 2017 I jumped into the incredibly exciting project of co-writing a book. I will be referring to it in the interim as “The Confidence Project” –  please feel free to read & follow for more about how you can get involved.

I love the ocean and the mountains, and essentially any sport related to either of those places. I suck at technology, (I know, I’m the worst millennial around) so bear with me as this site may have a few hiccups.

I make valiant attempts to use writing to articulate fascinating or challenging aspects of the human experience , or simply things I feel like writing about. I do not claim to be any form of expert, this blog is merely one voice in a vast internet full of very loud (very opinionated) voices.

Listen if you like.
