About the Author
Though she was always a great student, she dropped out of college after her third year in search of true happiness. She wanted something more out of life and knew the answers to her questions weren't going to be found in a classroom or in a cubicle somewhere. She knew that it was possible to live a life where dreams are made a reality.
A Colorado native, Courtney is currently living in Denver. By day, she works with preschoolers, and by night she is a writer and a poet. She has two young nieces who she spends as much time with as possible. She has a bad case of wanderlust and tries to travel as often as possible. She tends to be a fan girl over any sort of British television.
After being told she was a "Debbie Downer" in her early 20s, Courtney acquired a special talent for finding beauty and light in even the ugliest and darkest of situations.
For over a year now, she has been creating a positivity project known as "Something Beautiful" where she finds beauty in even the unlikeliest of places.
To check out this ongoing project, as well as some of her poetry, visit her on Instagram at @MakeItSomethingBeautiful.
