First and foremost, I'd like to thank my family and friends for their love and support, especially to my Hubaba (my grandma), who have always been so giving and so unconditional with her love. She is my hero. And I'd like to thank Ellen Degeneres for being such a true inspiration. Hopefully, one day I get to thank her in person. 

Secondly, I'd like to admit that I'm not entirely smart or extremely talented. I struggle with colours, grammar and vocabulary. I often think of myself equivalent to someone who loves to sing but is tone deaf when it comes to my creations. I love to write and draw and it makes me feel alive when I create. It excites me and it makes me feel happy to be alive and existing. We all need that. If you haven't found it, you should. 

I know, I know. Why Squid? 
I will write a short story about that so wait-for-it. 

Why am I doing this? What am I trying to achieve?
I have always wanted to do this. I have always made shy pieces of doodles and words but I've always allowed responsibilities and "life's drama", get in the way of being who I wanted to be for myself.

I got through a lot of life's challenges through channeling it into doodles and words. And it's time I shared it with the world, in hopes that I can inspire, motivate or just entertain someone in need of a smile or just, you know, to kill time. Whatever helps.

I am also hoping that through this, everyone will be motivated to turn the negative experiences in life to enriching ones. My dream is to be able to fund my degree followed by my masters so that I can be certified to give back to the world, in the form of counselling and through social work. In the meantime, I will be working on a few books filled with short stories and doodles that will be available for purchase by end 2016 or earlier. Do support me. =)
