I am twelve. My passion for writing began when I was a mere five year old. At five, I had written and illustrated a book on my own. I am a wild reader and have profound love for music. I like books of any genre, but it can depend largely on my mood. It is a dream come true to be able to publish my own story. Generally, my hobbies include playing tennis, basketball, the guitar and throwing shot put. I thoroughly enjoy writing haiku, the tough Japanese art of saying a lot in a few words. Not just that, I write couplets, ballads and other forms of poetry. I would like to be a travel journalist, some day. I’m usually quiet, but not because I’m afraid or shy. I am constantly thinking of either a story or a poem. With so much going on, I can sometimes be misunderstood as reserved. I am not. I cherish good company.
