    Be brave. That's my mantra as a writer, no matter what the content. When I'm writing articles and blogs, my primary aim is to create shareable content that pushes boundaries. It takes courage to create something new, because writing is at its most potent when it is brutally honest. I live in Johannesburg, South Africa, and work primarily as a content creator for mental health startups. During four years of a post-graduate psychology degree, mental health and wellness became my passion. I've been on both sides of the couch, and I have an in-depth understanding of personality struggles, mental illness, and what it means to get well. Writing fiction is my passion. I'm currently working on my second novel, a queer love story with dark political undertones. I also provide editing services and creative writing mentorship.

I am therefore confident that I would prove an asset to any business looking for a high-quality content creator or editor.
