Writing is a part-time activity, my full-time job being in the capacity of Purchasing / Planning / Inventory Administrator in the manufacturing environment in Benoni, South Africa. Included in my responsibilities is the task of formulating and documenting business processes and procedures, as well as compiling training documents, which requires clear, simple and concise writing.

I have completed a Bachelor of Arts Degree with three majors (English, Communication Studies and Writing for Performance). I have also completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Education majoring in English (Grade 10 – Grade 12) and I am currently studying a Bachelor of Education - Honours Degree specializing in Computer-Integrated Education. I am currently teaching English to Grade 4 - 7 at an International School while studying part-time and writing my novel in between. I have been writing for many years but only recently started to call myself a writer because I realized that when my fingers touch the keyboard I can be anyone, at anytime, at anyplace and I feel that I can best express my feelings and emotions through the usage of words. If I were asked to describe the person I am today, I would describe myself as a work in progress, not because I don't know who I am but because even though I have accomplished so much having lived such a difficult life, I know that I am capable and destined to shine more brighter and succeed beyond the depths of all the boundaries. In simple, I am an introvert that loves to write and I love to help people through my writing. Follow my blog to find out more. http://mykeystrokestohappiness.blogspot.com
