About the author

I describe myself with the word peculiar because I think in different ways than what other people usually think and I consider myself a cheerful and optimist girl, I usually have a positive attitude facing life. Academically I'm interested in writing specifically news and short stories. I'd like to revolve around writing which I fondly called The art of words. I have found enjoyment in reading and solving puzzles too.
