I went to college in India in 2012, I was overcome with so many emotions and shocks that I thought about documenting it all. I stooped writing the diary a week later but I always wish I hadn't done that

I started writing at the age of 8, and I haven't stopped since. I wrote a story about an orphan girl witch who lived on her own and was in possession of a strange necklace. One day she researched this necklace on the internet, and discovered it appeared to belong to Ancient Egypt times. She then flew on her broom to Egypt, where she entered a pyramid and discovered a secret door. After unlocking the door's complicated secret mechanism with her necklace, she fell into an abyss that led her to a completely different world, to a country and city she had never heard of. There she met a lonely elderly woman who also had the appearance of a witch, and who kindly took her in. After living with her for a few years, the girl who had now become a teenager, discovered that the old lady was her grandmother and finally learnt the unknown story of her own family. With this information, she then continued travelling through different forms of "abyss" and went on to meet the rest of her grandparents, this time in an exciting jungle where she experienced many adventures and ended up becoming a young woman.
This history had three different parts and many chapters, all of them also illustrated by myself. :-)
