I am a writer and I write about what's going on
AM a writer and I write about what's going on. My persuasion and
drive, both fused by journalism not a figment of my imagination. So I
need to explore the internet as I explore humanity (that's why I
travel a lot and organize community events)... The internet is a
given and it is very helpful for new immigrants like me who's family
