About Me

Even as a young child, I loved to conjure up stories with my imagination once I read a story I liked. I didn't like waiting for the sequel books. So I made my own stories ahead, and then I compared it with when the sequels came out with my imagination. It was a fun exercise because I developed storytelling and writing quite a bit since then. Still, the thrill of language and creation was discovered when I moved to Africa at a tender age of 10.

I got introduced to the French language and a cool Afro-English accent that I fell in love with immediately the moment I landed in Abidjan, Ivory Coast. And, I even brought it back to India in my native town after staying there for four years.

Mostly local kids made fun of my accent and creative ways of thinking wherever I went, which led me to divert myself into books, movies, and stories. By the time my teenage world caught up with being more accepting of differences in personality, I was way ahead. I was already attracting attention to my haikus and quotes in English classes and making a difference.

I love traveling and meeting local people to understand their perceptions of communication, food (FOOD!!), music, and life. I even like to stay in my room with my Macbook just as much without coming in contact with anyone for days. 

I believe such a contrast in my routine helps me ponder how languages and communication work with people. This is why I have become somewhat fluent in understanding trends of writing in four popular English dialects, aka American, Canadian, British, and Australian.

With that being said, I have been writing professionally since 2015 and have no intention of slowing down anytime soon.

 

Get in touch if you've got any comments, questions, suggestions, or just want to say hello. I would be more than happy to hear from you!
