I am often found sniffing books, reading books, adding books to TBR list and pleading mom to let me buy paperbacks which I’ve already read on Kindle. If you ever find a girl who will raise her hand to lead or to do all the work in a group task yet finds difficulty in walking up to strangers to strike a casual conversation, you’ve probably found me. An aesthete at heart, I try to find beauty in everything and everyone I see. I am a passionate, lively and talkative person living under my own carapace.
