What is your favourite meal, and why?
This is such a hard question for me because I have so many meals that I really enjoy. I think the best way to answer this question is to say that my favourite meals are ones that are savoury and include a variety of textures such as falafels with hummus or curries with rice. I just love the herbs and spices mixed into those meals and the explosion of flavour I experience makes eating so satisfying.
What is a moment in your life you are proud of?
The moments in life I am most proud of were also hard moments, or a crossroads in my life. When I moved out on my own was such a moment or when I changed jobs three years ago was such a moment. Both times, they were hard decisions but have been the best things I have done for myself and so I am proud I had the courage to make those changes even though they were scary and hard.
What is your favourite childhood memory, and why?
When I was very little, my dad used to make up fairy tales to tell me. I loved those stories so much, and there was one or two he told me over and over again. Those are my favourite memories because it was so soothing listening to my dad tell me those stories and because I was so young, there is still a magical quality connected to them.
What is your favourite family tradition?
Traditions are so interesting because they do change over time and I have seen my family traditions change from childhood till now. I suppose a favourite tradition of mine is enjoying a family meal together. It’s something we do often, but I have realized that what was common place for me was not so common place in other families, and so I’ve learned to value those gatherings, especially during self isolation.
Why do you write?
I started writing when I was very young, imitating some of the tween books I was reading, and I kept writing well into my teens and early twenties. I always felt there was a story to tell, but I was also discouraged a lot, for a lot of different reasons and throughout my life I have returned to writing again and again to express my thoughts, feelings and to connect to the world. This blog is about helping others, but I do that through writing, and I feel like my writing can touch and help others and helping others has always been important to me.
