“After a serendipitous occurrence last summer, I reconnected with a previously long lost love of mine…Writing! Writing was something I used to do a lot until about 10 years ago when I graduated from the University.

One thing that never left me though was the fact that I would always get these ideas but would neverput them down. That has all changed now with a nationally published essay and a few op-eds in my university’s student newspaper. Now that my love is back, I plan on not letting it go ever again. My intention is to feed and nurture it and hopefully watch it grow and blossom. Hopefully it will blossom into something that will earn the respect and adoration of others. This is why I joined Ezibota.”
