Well about me, I love trying different cuisine and traveling. I had lots of twists and turns regarding my career and still trying to fit in. But I love to write and I write poems on my Instagram page. Writing has always been the easiest way for me to get through my hard times and I believe it’s easy to reach people through what you write.
