My name is Shalida Ann I'm 26 I'm a fiction writer, lifestyle blogger, and personal stylist. I was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. I attended university in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at Point Park University where I studied journalism.

The bottom of my spine never developed so I've been in a wheelchair since I was 3. I was raised by my mother she had me when she was 17. Because of her I grew up being very independent and always had goals. I love being Afro-Latina, I didn't grow up with my Puerto Rican culture so I had to figure everything out on my own as I got older. I consider myself very diverse, not only am I Afro-Latina and disabled, I'm also bisexual. My goal is to give more representation for the bisexual community.

I work as personal stylist but I'm also a writer. I write short stories, mainly horror. I have a YouTube channel and a blog both are lifestyle where I share my style and daily life events through weekly vlogs. This year my sister and I are started a podcast called Two Wick Sisters. We discuss being black in America. I'm very proud of what we are doing.
