Fariya Kabir is a sophomore in high school. She is 15 years old, passionate about writing and loves children, animals, dancing and cooking. She hopes to be a pediatrician and work for orphans, the elderly and helpless people in the future. She lives every day with these words by Prajakta in mind: “With a smile for a smile and a heart for a heart Evolution of the new mankind will start No shapes, no sizes, no colors, no faiths, no wars, no judgments, no guns, no hate...”
My writings are often not so organized and very personal as they always shows my literal emotions and who I am. I write when I feel happy, I write when I feel sad, I write when I get mad, I write when I get stressed. Writing helps me to get all my hidden emotions out and offers me the relief of sharing and making the burden light. So I want to thank all my late nights and early morning journal and writing pieces for providing me with a good day and good nights.
