In Almost 30, Sawyer Jenkins attempts to maneuver through societies’ pressures of adulthood: financial instability, still living at home with family, job stagnation, men or lack thereof, and the physical transformation of a young woman on the verge of 30. As Sawyer attempts to “adult” she dissects the world and her purpose while dispelling stereotypes placed upon black millennials, such as herself.
Victoria Kent hails from Baltimore Maryland where she attended St. Timothy’s High School and later graduated from Loyola University with a bachelor’s degree in English. Her love for writing began at the age of five when she began reading and writing poetry and short stories. When she’s not writing Victoria volunteers with the Baltimore Guardian Angels and is an “Investigative Discovery” addict. Almost 30 is her first novel.
