Note from Author


"Never touch anything with half your heart,”

is the personal motto that Tara Sibel Demren strives to emulate in every facet of her approach to life. She pours her entire being into the many passions that set her soul on fire which include being an entrepreneur, artist, author, aspiring modern philosopher, and published poet. 


Quite simply, Tara is driven by an innate desire to capture and share the human experience through her many mediums of creation. An old soul, but a kid at heart, Tara views the world around her with an existential lens that prompts her to grasp life by the horns fearlessly. Born in Paris to loving parents from Istanbul and New York City, Tara was raised in Miami and fell in love with art, philosophy, and design at the young impressionable age of 12. She’s been referred to as a “Renaissance woman” by many for her multi-faceted interests and hunger to keep learning more. When she’s not creating or learning, Tara enjoys keeping active and often times can be found paddle-boarding, cooking, and spending time with her friends and family.


Tara got on her own Express Lane during Freshman year, that led to the unfolding of an unconventional young adult life which she reflects upon in this book. It was her relatability and positive outlook that gained her a trusted and loyal audience of a younger generation that yearned for more meaningful lives. This is the very reason that “The Express Lane for Young Adults,” has been realized, so that Tara’s insights and takeaways would be easily accessible to all.
