Even after graduating with a Law degree at London South Bank University, she did not relent in her determination to pursue her passion in writing over the years.
She wants to use this medium to thank every single person that has provided encouragement to her during and throughout the writing process.
Even though there were moments over the years she had doubts about releasing her first novel, she has learnt that in life, anything you set your mind to, it is imperative to work towards achieving that goal regardless of any obstacles along the way. She intends to encourage other upcoming authors to believe in themselves and to remember that there are fans out there who want to hear their voice through the work of their hands.
