I was born and raised in Malaysia, but have since moved to Australia to pursue a degree in public relations, which I graduated from recently.

Writing for me is a refreshing escape from the world, where I can enjoy the comforts of solitude and still be able to express myself. I'm inspired by J.K Rowling, travelling the world is my dream and I adore a good breakfast.
