Every little note, haiku or post I have written over the years, came together as this unusual yet vivid mosaic wall. A wall of rage, joy, hormones, heartbreak, fear, anxiety, friendship, love and so much more. A wall with clusters of colours ― blacks and blues with bits of golden yellow cutting through and dots of green in between. A wall of my story and my journey, when looked at in isolation were ceramic shards but when put together made a beautiful mosaic wall of memories…of life.

Your friends and family,…

“Where do you see yourself in five years?” she asked. I remember being really excited about working and taking on responsibility. I knew I wasn’t ready to study further just yet. I was keen on gaining some experience and making money in the hope that this would guide and streamline my future choices. Quite honestly, at 20, I…
