About doe ♡

Doeneseya is a 20 year girl from New York. She's full of ambition, determination, and a head full of dreams. Doeneseya started writing at the age of 8. She didn't think to officially publish her work. Many people tried to fill her head with doubts that her books would never be successful. Her riders supported her and pushed her to succeed. In 2013, Doeneseya self published 5 books. Now, her stories are available all over, from iBooks to Barnes & Noble. Her well known [Justin Bieber] fan fiction The Body Rock Series has touched lives all over the map. It's a relatable story about a girl named Marissa. Marissa has a past, struggles, insecurities, drive and 1 dream. Doeneseya sees herself in Marissa. She's vulnerable, yet so strong. She's a dreamer and achiever. Don't follow your dreams, CHASE THEM! Doe uses social media to connect with her riders. She calls them "riders" because her books have helped people and have helped to make people stronger. Being a rider is about overcoming challenges that life throws at you. It's about being loyal and true to yourself and others. It's about having confidence in yourself and chasing your dreams no matter how unreachable they may seem. It's about being strong and looking forward to a brighter tomorrow. It's about never giving up. Doeneseya uses social media to promote her books. She uses it to feed off of all the feedback people give her. Whether is good or bad. Criticism drives and makes her work harder. She uses social media to simply have a conservation with her riders and make sure they're doing well. Doeneseya uses social media to spread a positive message.
