    I have been writing for as long as I can remember. Let it be school magazines, online platforms, or different university societies, writing is one thing that always brings out the best in me. I am also a huge Movie and TV Show watcher. Moreover, I love reading books and am fairly knowledgeable regarding the video games industry.
