I have written a hundred stories in my head when I was yet a child; while gathering food for our cow in bushy areas, I passed the time telling stories to myself… Writing has always been my passion… I remembered when I was in Grade Two, our teacher let us write about our pet but I didn’t have one, so I just created one in my head… I also got inspiration from my aunt who wrote poems when she had nothing to do, my first poem was published in our school publication when I was in Third Year high school…  I pursued my desire to enhance my English and Literature skill in college…

 

 

Since I was young I didn’t stop reading, but life took its toll on me when we separated with mypartner… Then, I had to overcome my depression by dragging my feet to work day by day, and pretend to my students nothing’s wrong…

 

A friend I met online encouraged me to express my feelings through poetry, that inspired me to write more poems whenever an inspiration comes to me… Inspiration I mean not just happy ones but everything that sparks my interest and let me press the keys until the feelings I have inside take shape into words and emotions…

 

I am an Educator by Profession.

 

I love classics for they enhance the growth of the soul in its journey to this cosmological dance...
