I remember when I was still a young girl I would sit in front of the class to listen to all the stories and ask the most questions. I had a desire to know more, of everyone and everything and I guess that's where my love for writing and telling stories started. After studying Journalism, I became a teacher and a coach. Working with the youth has brought me immeasurable pleasure in hearing and telling more stories and I hope to share even more incredible stories through this platform.
