Welcome! My name is Ariela. I am full-time grant writer by day and a novice genealogy researcher by night. In the past, I volunteered for a publishing company that uses oral history to promote human rights and dignity by amplifying the voices of people who have faced injustice. Basically, I love stories and people and voices.

In my spare time, write the occasional blog post about anything that piques my interest, take classes through my local library, and if I have time, I say hello to my husband.

I am in no way an expert in any of the things I discuss; in fact, I am learning as I go. Hopefully you enjoy the journey with me.
