My name is Michaela J. Lawlor and I am the owner of New Sun Rising, LLC. I am a current student working toward a Master of Fine Arts in Creative and Professional Writing. I am studying screenwriting as my primary genre, and journalism as my secondary. In August 2019, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Health Promotion Studies with a concentration in Wellness Management. I achieved my CHES (Certified Health Education Specialist) Certification in October 2019. Although I majored in health, I share a passion for the arts. I love photography, videography/filmmaking, graphic design, drawing, painting, music, reading, and writing. With writing, I can combine all of my interests, including art, health, and wellness. I am currently working as a Graduate Assistant at my school. In addition to my creative interests, I love being active, and I enjoy the outdoors; I love mountain biking, running, walking, hiking, golf, horseback riding, and yoga.

The rising sun is symbolic of a new day; a new day to be a better version of oneself.  We live and breathe by the light of the sun, with each day giving us a fresh slate. Being a morning person, I do my best work bright and early. I feel energized when I watch the spectacular sunrises outside of my window, and it inspires me to create something new every day.
