“I want to be an author, I’d love to write words that touch and inspire…” she said in earnestly to her reflection in the mirror as she had done a countless number of times before. Deftly the plump dark-skinned young lady jumped back onto her bed and brow furrowed in intense concentration she began to scrawl inside her journal….

“Church, church oh my church…” the young girl recited confidently in front of the packed congregation. Her voice rose and fell in the manner of a seasoned orator. Her demeanor and posture exuding confidence despite it being her very first performance in front of a packed church…

The whole auditorium sat still, all eyes trained on the short plump figure in a green blazer standing on the podium…There was just something about this girl that the audience could not pinpoint but which drew their eyes to her and refused to let their concentration wander… there was a uniqueness about her that made them sit up and pay attention whenever she opened her mouth.

The above paragraphs all describe true incidences from my life which have led me to where I am at this point in my life….
My aim is to touch,inspire as well as entertain through my writings…

hopefully someone recognizes a little bit of themselves in these episodes out of my life story as well as in my writings because in each and every story and in each and every poem are little nuggets of Vanadis ….For in each and every one of us, in each and every story, poem or experience there is a unique beauty….
