M’Sharra: "I Want to Inspire a Love for Reading and Writing"

“I want to pursue a career in creative writing.

My interest in writing was originally sparked by my enjoyment of reading books ever since I was a little girl. As a high school student, writing became a way of expression for me. Some of my writings were acknowledged by both teachers and peers from different platforms. These writings turned into early publishing opportunities and fueled my aspiration to become a creative writer.

I find great interest in sparking this same love for reading and writing in youth. This is why I want to publish books for both children and teens. Writing will give me opportunities to connect to youth through various genres of writing, such as action, adventure, mystery, science fiction, and more.

Being equipped with a wealth of knowledge will prepare me for creating writing pieces that will appeal to a young audience. I would love to publish and take my creative writing to the next level so that youth will have creative content to read and learn from.”
