Writing comes easy to me. I started writing when I was 9.
I wrote a poem about a Tiger. I got 0/10. Yes, zero! I had never gotten zero before.
The teacher cited “copying”. She decided that my poem was so damn good, that I could only have copied it.
That moment changed my life.
Because instead of causing me to shrink in shame and embarassment, it lit a fire inside of me. “There’s something there huh?” I thought, “a kind of Magic?”
And so began my journey of doing what I love to do.
