because showing up matters

Thank You For Being Here is a digital publication of original poetry and prose rooted in self-discovery and gratitude. The author and designer, Jenay Ross, shares her experiences that explore topics of  identity, self-worth, anxiety, relationships, and personal growth.

As someone who struggled with feelings of abandonment at a young age, she values the act of showing up for others and herself. With her work, she aims to shed self-doubt and old grudges in order to emerge with more confidence, power, and energy to move forward in her own light.

Her identity is a puzzle. Every piece unique and scattered, waiting to evolve into the ultimate self portrait.
