It was never in my plan to become a writer. You see, back then, I was pursuing a degree in engineering. Life got hard for me financially and I had to look for work in order to make ends meet. I distinctly remember the time I was looking for a job and I recalled how much I enjoyed writing essays when I was in school. It also occurred to me that my sister was also working as a writer and seemed to enjoy her job immensely. Towards the end of my university days, I realized I didn’t want a career in engineering anymore.
I decided to pursue a career as a writer instead.
I immediately seized the opportunity for a writing job as soon as it came my way. Writing for a living is much more challenging than I anticipated. My first pieces were rejected due to grammatical errors and duplicate phrases. Gradually, though, I learned a lot and managed to hone my skills further.
Today, I’m a content writer in an awesome digital marketing company, surrounded by some of the most terrific teammates anyone could ask for as well as a work environment that is friendly and warm. My experience shows that no matter how much life pushes you around, you’ll always manage to find the place where you truly belong.
For me, this is it.
