I fell in love with reading stories when I was about 8 years old. At the time, I felt like I had magical powers because I could read every book in the house. My mother's university books used to be problematic since I didn't understand the advanced English in them. That did not discourage me though because I knew that all I had to do was pass the next grade, and my understanding would improve. My love for reading encouraged me to write my own stories which were mainly about animals, but in my teenage years I stopped writing. That's quite understandable because at that stage you deal with a lot; self identity, boys, fitting in with friends, girl drama, parents whom you think are too controlling, and by that time I thought I wanted to become a fashion designer. Regardless of that, I continued reading books. I was reminded of my passion when my grade 11 teacher gave me a diary for doing well in class. After that I just became obsessed with writing.
