The world of books is an intriguing path to take. I have been passionate about writing and publishing for as long as I can remember. I am a young author who dwelled into the sphere of writing at an early age. Studying and choosing my major in journalism was just a part of my rebel persona. I published my first book in my second year of graduation which is called 'Not so sweet 16'. This book highlights the issues that a teenager faces in today's world. I have scripted two documentaries till now and I am working towards many more.
