Yes, that’s my real name.

Modesty Sanchez is a freelance writer based in Boston, MA, where she received her B.A. in Writing, Literature, and Publishing from Emerson College, with a double minor in Sociology and Postcolonial Studies. She likes to write about the intricacies of young adulthood– everything from the superiority of being single to the necessary dismantlement of capitalism– through a sociological (sometimes Marxist) lens. Formerly, she was the LGBTQIA+ Editor at London-based Label-Press Magazine, and currently she is the Sex & Love Editor at Lithium Magazine. Additionally, she also has a monthly political column in Boston Hassle. This past year, she was also part of the inaugural class of the Just Media Uprising fellowship, where she was able to delve into movement journalism with renowned journalists. She has bylines in Boston Common Magazine, Lithium, Adolescent Content, TwinkRev, Boston Hassle, Also Cool Magazine, and more. In her free time, she can be found reading , going to concerts (remember those?), watching Seinfeld, or not living up to her name.
