Traci Smith Contributing writer Greetings Friends! I am Traci Smith a Native of Port Arthur, Texas currently studying Social Work with dreams of becoming a well-known writing. Pretty ironic right? Social Work major with a Writer's Dream? I know lol. But trust me it all ties together! I believe that I have a higher calling. I was put on this earth for a special purpose, to touch and impact lives. Once you discover what your purpose is, it's really hard not to fulfill it, not to pursue it, and not to put it to work. I have been on a mission ever since my discovery and this is only the beginning! I hope that we can grow together. You are all my friends, my sistah's. Much Love, Traci xoxo
