My name is Simon Heywood. I was born in the Greater Boston Area, and am currently 20 years old. I have many passions, but among those that stand out are my passions for story-telling, which branch off into performing and writing, my passion for finding the truth, and my passion for helping others find their peace, giving them hope, love, and positivity. I decided to create this blog to keep my Journalism skills in practice. On this blog, you will find urgent (politically related) news both US and international, and also music and product reviews. My name is Simon Heywood, and welcome to The Olive Branch.
