“Writing is my therapy, it enables me to impart not just knowledge, or information, but to give the world my own, sometimes ‘out of the box’ point of view. When I write, I want my articles to invoke something in my readers; whether motivation, or anger. It is reaching something, it is touching something and that gives me a sense of fulfilment”
