HI, I'M MEKITA RIVAS.
I'm a multicultural writer, editor, and creative consultant with more than six years of industry experience. I'm currently based in Washington, D.C.
As a freelance journalist, my work has been published in the Washington Post, Glamour, Marie Claire, SELF, Teen Vogue, and others. I frequently cover culture, fashion, travel, and wellness through the lens of gender and race. I also maintain a personal lifestyle blog on this site.
I earned my undergraduate degrees in journalism and English from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. My current creative projects include a short film screenplay and a collection of personal essays.
When not writing — or thinking about writing — I enjoy high intensity workouts, calming yoga sessions, sustainably sourced food and wine, and planning my next escapade.
