Hailey Hudson is a 19-year-old homeschool grad from the mountains of North Georgia. She’s an author (you can buy her debut middle grade book here), a full-time freelance writer (she writes about fitness, nutrition, and education–view her portfolio here), and the site coordinator for a local nonprofit that tutors refugee kids. Hailey’s health problems ended her dreams of college softball, but she still loves both coaching (she’s the head coach for an 8U rec ball team) and working out. She also is passionate about theater, music, dance, learning Spanish and ASL, and anything creative (and because of this, she recently founded The Hardworking Creative).
With two and a half years of college classes under her belt, Hailey is now focusing on her writing career full-time and aiming to double her income to move out in 2019. Her future plans are to become an established YA author, expand her freelance writing and voiceover client base as much as possible, and to start a nonprofit that offers underprivileged kids the opportunity to play sports at a lower cost and to hear about Jesus.
