HI, I'M MEKITA RIVAS.
I'm a multiracial writer, editor, and content strategist with more than six years of industry experience.
As a freelance journalist, my work has been featured in Marie Claire, Teen Vogue, Racked, Bustle, and others. I frequently cover politics, pop culture, and wellness through the lens of gender and race. I also maintain a personal blog on this site where I write about fitness, style, and travel.
I earned my undergraduate degrees in journalism and English from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. My current creative writing projects include a collection of short stories and a feature film screenplay.
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.
