Hi, I’m Arian! (pronounced Ah-Ree-Ahn)

You’re probably wondering why I opted to name my site amplified… well, there’s two reasons:

1. It’s a nod to my initials, AMP.
2. One of it’s meanings embodies a goal I have for the content I create. By definition, to amplify is to enlarge upon or add detail to (a story or statement). I hope as you move through this site, that you find lagniappe.

Here are five facts about me:

  1. I hope through writing and creating I can stimulate positive change.
  2. I am inspired by quotes– My favorite quote is, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” -Mahatma Gandhi
  3. I love giraffes.
  4. My favorite number is 22.
  5. I like learning new things, so I dabble in a little bit of everything.
I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

Peace & Love
