About Veralyn Media

I started Veralyn Media in 2010 out of a desire to tell the stories of others. I am one of those people that when asking, “How are you?,” I genuinely want to know the answer. I believe we all are an authority on our stories. And so, Veralyn Media is a multimedia website that is, All About Perspectives.
