WHAT ARE YOUR LIFE’S ASPIRATIONS?
My aspiration is to be an artist who is a voice to the voiceless, who speaks against all sorts of injustices but beyond that, I aspire to write truth that will inspire generations to come.
WHY DO YOU WRITE?
I write because word won’t leave my head. I do not force it out; writing to me is second nature. I write because I need to breathe.
WHY DO YOU THINK SISTERHOOD IS VITAL?
Sisterhood is vital because it breaks stereotypes and allows women to define themselves outside of what people say. To form a bond where we can heal each other and ourselves.
