About Me

My name is Erick Bawyn. I am from Menominee Michigan. I graduated from Menominee High School and I attended Central Michigan University for three years but have recently moved to Arizona and transferred to Arizona State University. I am currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Philosophy.

Growing up I always knew I was different and always knew I had a bigger purpose. I just never really knew what to do with my thoughts and talents.

I was aware that I was different but I didn’t exactly know HOW different I was. For the most part I figured everyone was going through what I was going through. I thought it was just a part of growing up. Well, I was wrong. 

For you that know me you are aware of how “weird” I am. I always came off as shy and just different. I wasn’t really shy. I just thought very differently and couldn’t fit in anywhere because I couldn’t relate to anyone. So, I just kept to myself and smiled and got on with my life. I can definitely see how I came off as shy, but that just wasn’t it.

I believe my purpose is to help as many people as I can and help raise awareness.

It’s not easy being different. Everyone thinks you’re crazy. They mock you and laugh at you.

It takes a lot of strength to stay true to your roots. It’d be much easier to just give up and be comfortable and live a pleasure based life. Just to pretend to fit in and pretend to like what everyone else likes.

Just continuously distract myself with social media and Netflix. Do everything to keep my mind quiet and push away my problems and blame it on external forces.

But I’ve done that for too long. I’ve kept quiet for too long. It’s time people know the truth.

I want to be the voice that informs people it is okay to be different. We don’t have to fake our lives anymore. We can do what we truly enjoy. We can fulfill our bigger purpose.

  1. Word. I love this. I’m from Grand Rapids, MI. I hope you’re enjoying AZ. Anyways I feel you. As a 28-year-old millennial, I feel like I’m at a point in my life where I can’t keep quiet anymore. I’ve bought a few domains so we’ll see if I can just start blogging.

    • I love to hear it. I’ve kept to myself too long. I figured it’s time to lead by example and inspire others to do what inspires them. Life is too short to live an unhappy life.
