Her dream is to help her parents from financial issues and show people her imagination.  Ivy did not let mental disabilities stop her from writing a novel about her first character that she imagined since she was eight.   In 'The Golden-Syph,' a boy, who is equipped with a brilliant plan, goes to the mortal worlds that are conquered by darkness and does things like no other boy can.
