It has always been my dream to become an amazing writer that will be able to inspired other people and change their lives for the better. I would like to write stories and share them my words because a lot of authors have also inspired me to write. I want to make people realize how helpful writing is as a form of expressing one's self. Someday, I know that I will be able to make this happen. I will be able to write stories that will be known to the whole world and will also become part of their life.
