I love writing! Come summer, autumn, winter and spring. It doesn´t matter when. For me writing has always been a passion. It´s a bit like therapy. Always has been. I write what I feel and then it feels better. Just like dancing. I express my feelings and afterwards I feel so happy, even elated sometimes.
It can of course be scary and I absolutely feel vulnerable about it in occasions but once you´ve taken that leap, it feels completely different afterwards. It´s ok to show the world how you feel and to reveal a little bit of yourself. You don´t have to show your full self if you don´t want to. Only what you yourself choose to present in the public eye.
Personally, I am very honest about myself and when I choose to write stories about my life. That doesn´t mean that I always share absolutely everything about me but what I do decide to put out is hundred percent real. Otherwise there is no point.
My Swedish and History teacher, Mr. Folke Hortin, inspired me beyond means. I cannot even begin to express to you all how much he meant to me and my education. He treated all of us students like adults, like individuals and he really made a difference in my life. I will never forget him. He has a very special place in my heart. He believed in me and my abilities and because of him I continued to follow my passion of writing and for that I am forever grateful.
