A vial of humour, a dash of poetry, a splash of thrill, a drop of vocabulary and a boatload of creativity is the recipe for what makes me, well me. I fell in love with words when my friends were busy falling for boys. While they all got their hearts broken, I found love. My love made me feel beautiful and it empowered me. I believe each word has a story to tell and all a person needs to do is to harness the ability to choose the right words, we all have beautiful, touching stories to tell, so let us do that right here.
