Thanks for visiting my professional portfolio! My name is Kara Straight and I’ve had a passion for writing since I was in the second grade. I later attended The Ohio State University, where I graduated with a degree in Communication and Professional Writing with a background in Journalism.

Over the past year, I have written for three different publications: BallerStatus.comBolde.com, and LosttoLive.com.

BallerStatus is a pop culture site, responsible for sharing daily pop news as well as different music, fashion, and entertainment news. A good portion of my writing was tailored to the pop news and fashion pages.

Bolde is a site geared toward women in the 20’s, where we share advice, stories, and personal experiences. All stories written for Bolde are written in “listicle” style and shared on a first-hand basis.

Lost to Live is a travel website, where personal travel experiences, tips, and suggested travel destinations are shared.

I have compiled a few of my best stories from each publication in the menu options above! Enjoy!
