When you scroll through Turner’s Instagram, you see someone who is destined with a ferevered work ethic, and bundle of creativity. “I was born and raised in Lakeland Florida, a small town between Orlando and Tampa. As I got older I always had a bat temper. So in order to calm myself I wrote down how I felt in one word. Then those one words went from sentences, to paragraphs,” Said Turner.
