The Writer


Confessions of a Writer 

Confucius said:
“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” 

Writing has always been a hidden passion of mine and I am thankful that for the past few years, I have been blessed with numerous opportunities to learn and practice many aspects of the craft. Needless to say, the journey has been phenomenal. 

I anticipate the year 2017 to be another great year, thus I am actively looking for opportunities to grow and hone my skills. Kindly contact me at hajar.alwi@gmail.com if you would like to provide that avenue. 

Thank you.
