The Author

I was born in Slovania and moved with my family to the United States at the age of nine. When I first got to California, I spoke zero English. In my country, my parents had enrolled me in foreign language classes, but the foreign language options that we had were German and French. I took German lessons and I am fluent in my native language as well as German. Becuase I went to school in the United States, I am also fluent in English. I started writing poetry ever since I was a little child.
