About Sylver

sylver-blaque logoWaking up one day in a foreign country with an empty wallet, and the realization that Sylver Blaque, Dh.GB (Diehard Gypsy Backpacker) is not a respected title, I decided to return to school for degrees in the things I love most: writing and culture.

Sylver Blaque, B.A. Journalism; B.A. Middle Eastern Studies.

Yes, that sounds much better 🙂

With academic initials following my name, I’m setting out to provide for my inner gypsy!

Utilizing acquired skill, life experience & primal creativity, I shall now tackle my first official writing assignment: The Resumé.
