Williesha Morris is an Alabama-based freelance journalist and copywriter currently focusing on accessibility, mental health, gaming, and tech. She's also highly experienced in administrative assistance and office management. Williesha is originally from South Carolina and is a graduate of the University of South Carolina's journalism and mass communications program. Williesha’s biggest strength is empathy, which she says is not something you're born with but can develop over time, making her an excellent motivator and community manager.
Williesha is also an award-winning blogger. Her blog, My Freelance Life, was named one of the top sites for writers in 2016. She has contributed to dozens of print and digital publications, including WIRED, Country Living, Digital Trends and TechCrunch. She's also a social and political activist. In 2017, she was given the Service Hero award by Alabama Young Professionals for her work in promoting Loving Day. When she's not writing, journaling, or searching for the next big idea, she's watching true crime documentaries, playing video games or waxing nostalgic for the first few phases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In her free time, Williesha spends most of her volunteer time with an advocacy group focusing on Alabamians in rural areas and small towns.
