About me

About a Girl

There once was a girl who lived in her dreams, forgetting the world around her, believing only in make believe. It was never lonely and always fun, but as she grew older she discovered she’d been missing out on the world she’d shunned. Opening her eyes she saw people were all around, she was inspired by them, learned from them, grew strength from their love. The girl’s life is now technicolour and her dreams have become real, she writes about the world around her and how it can make you feel.
