Breeshia Turner

Breeshia never knows what to write for these things, so she’s filled with anxiety and confusion. She thinks that this is supposed to be an opportunity to highlight some of her major accomplishments while showing off her positive personal attributes, but she would rather just list the basics and give people an opportunity to know her flaws.
Breeshia is a South Carolina native, but she feels fortunate to also call California “home.” She is in her first year of Divinity School at the University of Chicago, and she’s interested in everyday performance(s), from religious rituals to sex. She writes poetry, essays, nonfiction, short stories and plays, sometimes dabbling in children’s books and comic strips when the mood arises. Breeshia enjoys being intersectional in all aspects of her life. On most days, she fancies herself a writer.
