I am a strong character, who is determined to follow my goals and achieve my dreams. Ever since I was able to write, I would always carry a notebook and pen with me and I would fill the pages with songs, poems and stories. Writing has always been an outlet for me, a way for me to express my emotions and to overcome any difficulties. I used to want to be a singer-songwriter, though; unfortunately I have not been blessed with the best singing voice, so that dream had to go. Nevertheless, I still write songs and maybe one day, I will hear someone singing them on the radio. My dream would be to become a successful writer in the future; when people hear my name, I want them to think of a particular novel or article that I’d written. I would love to work in publishing or screenplays because I feel it will ignite a spark inside of me, if I see my name in print or in the credits of a film. I have a range of topics I am passionate about, from films and TV series as they give me inspiration for my own work, to being involved with promoting the rights of disabled people, as that’s a subject close to my heart. So far, my articles have covered a range of subjects; profile pieces, disability rights, college open evening, the new Stansted Airport College, and the Apple Distinguished Status at Harlow College.
