I was born Keely Danielle DeLoache on May 28, 1994 at Michael Reese Hospital in Chicago, Illinois. My parents started dating in ’92 and got married a year later before I was born in my grandmother’s backyard. When I was about a year old, my father took a job out in South London and we stayed in an apartment complex called The Chilton’s, just the three of us. While we lived there, I attended a daycare called Little Acorns, and to this day I still have my tiny sweatshirt my mother bought from them. We moved back to Chicago to Stoney Island in late ’96 after my father took a job at the Chicago Board of Trade working as a stock trader. By then, I was attending preschool at Creative Mansion in Hyde Park Illinois. Some of my happiest memories as a child started there because we would play fun games like Miss Mary Mack, ring a round the rosey, and play on the playground equipment outside while racing bikes. I spent my the first few years of my life growing up in Stoney Island while attending St. Thomas elementary school from the fifth grade until sixth grade. After my parents divorced when I was ten years old, my mother and I moved out to Schererville, Indiana in 2006. I continued schooling in Hyde Park and my interest as a child were heavily influenced by media, books, classic rock music, and art. In my leisure time, which as a child I plenty of, I would spend time writing short stories based on the world around me and influenced by Stephen King novels as I am very much into suspense and thrillers. I attended high school in St. John Indiana called Lake Central High school for four years with an interest in Psychology. This interest followed me until I went to South Suburban College in South Holland. I mainly took classes in Psychology and graduated in June 2016 with an Associate’s in Science. After that, I transferred to Governors State to continue my studies in journalism and media studies hoping to become an affective writer and journalist in the not too distant futu
