I started this blog as a seventeen year old who lacked confidence. She didn’t know who she was. I do. So, unlike my original about page, this one will be a little different. This is who I am, and I hope that, with a bit of luck, you will want to continue reading more about my life.
Just a few small facts about me…
I’m half Turkish and half English.
(This is the fact I use for nearly all icebreakers I have had to take part in.)
I’m left handed which always seems to be a conversation starter.
(Whilst writing in class someone always asks the obvious ‘Are you left handed?’)
I can bake but I can’t cook.
(This really is one of the most interesting things about me)
I write when I have time, and I dream when I don’t. I immerse myself in music, and find myself being inspired by it each and every day. I cry when I’m stressed, and I feel things too deeply. I’m sensitive (more than I would like to admit). I can be defensive (even though I wish I wasn’t so). But I’m human.
One day, I hope to share my stories on bookshelves around the world. Until then, I hope you enjoy seeing the journey. I once said that “this is a blog for the daydreamers and optimists,” but that was a lie. It’s a blog for the realists.
Until next time keep dreaming x
