Who We Are (last updated April 2017)


Hey you! My name is Keiana. I’m 18 years old and I currently attend Purdue University in Indiana. While I am here, I’ll be studying Psychological Sciences with a concentration in Pre-Medicine and a minor in Sociology.

I picked up writing at a very young but I didn’t think I could actually do something with it until I got to high school. There, I was the Copy Editor for my schools student published magazine in 2016-2017 and also the Academics Editor for the yearbook staff in 2016-2017.

Writing is my passion and even though I don’t have much time to do all of the things that I enjoy, I can’t give up writing so I have joined The Purdue Review on campus.

In my free time (which is almost never now), I also play the viola and piano.

I am a sole believer in my Christian faith but I don’t believe a person must go to church in order to believe or have a relationship with God. I attend bible study sessions on Thursday’s with the Purdue Bible Fellowship.

When I’m not writing my next blog post, you can find me singing my heart out, planning for the future, at Starbucks or in a corner reading a book.

Getting in touch with me is super easy! Follow me on Instagram at: @keiana_b

or if you’d like to email me at: keianabowie@yahoo.com

I hope that when you do decide to leave, you go feeling encouraged and inspired.

Miyah is an exceptional artist who has interests in 3D work and 2D work including drawing, screen printing, painting and much more. She has played the viola for five years and played piano for several years in between. 

She is a spiritual person who is currently working towards Self-Realization under her guru– Paramahansa Yogananda. Miyah first learned of the Self-Realization Fellowship (SRF) from a best friend, then purchased Yogananda’s autobiography, which you can buy here if interested. She meditates everyday and believes in God while not limiting herself to just one religion.

When Miyah isn’t writing her next post or painting her next masterpiece, you can also find her learning new things or in the kitchen making amazing desserts!

Jalyn Bowie is a 16 year old from Northern Indiana who hopes to attend IU-Bloomington, Ball State University or Purdue University when the time comes. For the time being she loves playing her viola and making fabulous pieces of artwork and unique pieces of jewelry during the school year and hanging out with friends during the summer months.

Jalyn is a contemporary artist who has interests in photography and jewelry making.

Jalyn received the Art Student of the Year award in 2017 for her exuberant art style, dedication to art and her down-to-earth personality. She has played the viola for six years and enjoys singing in her free time.

She was raised as Baptist but now that Jalyn has grown up some and is able to make some of her own decisions, she just knows that she is a Christian while not categorizing herself in a specific biblical subdivision.

When Jalyn isn’t writing her next post or crafting her next jewelry piece, you can find her watching her favorite shows on Netflix or defying all the rules of art.
