I first started to write at the age of 9,
It was my escape from reality, living in a country and a place I never felt welcomed in, I decided to create a world of my own.
A world without so much pain, a world where magic exists at every turn. Everyday I would come home from school and write about me and my two best friends.
In my world we were princesses and when we got into fights they became witches, and when we made up the curse was reversed and they were back to princesses.
Where us three would rule our kingdom for all of eternity.
Do whatever we want, like eat loads of chocolate and stay up past midnight. It was really fun.
In my diary everyday was an adventure full of light…
Maybe I couldn’t apply the light to my real life back then; but in my diary it could’ve been a day where I went home crying because kids were making fun of me since I couldn’t speak English; yet at the end of the night I would sneak into my little world with my pen and paper, and have the best time of my life.
With my best friends, and thats how I survived my childhood.
