“Where I come from, art doesn’t sweat. It doesn’t put food on the table. It doesn’t retire a good life. But this is the path I have chosen. It is like staring at a huge brick wall hoping it would sing to me. It actually does.”
Reading, for me, has always been fun. Growing up I read everything from billboards to the few books I got from my friends in school, but it wasn’t until I was 14 that I started to write a few short stories.
Coming from a place where “writing doesn’t exactly put food on the table or retire a good life”, I waived my passion and went ahead to study Economics at the university. But my desire for the art was far from forgotten.
Today, I have decided to devotedly follow what I love to do.
