About VanyaWhite:

Writing is my passion. It means everything to me, it really does. However, I am saddend by what adolescents our age are reading; cliche novellas instead of American Epics, such as To Kill a Mockingbird.

VanyaWhite's Favorite Personal Quote:

"When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down "happy". They told me I didn’t understand the assignment.
I told them they didn’t understand life."
— John Lennon
