Writing

Background

From an early age, writing has remained a deep passion of mine. Starting out, I always loved writing fiction and poetry (which I still do occasionally). As I became more deeply involved in business and entrepreneurship, I found it very enjoyable to reflect on some of the lessons and insight I've gained in my endeavors through writing business-insight articles. On top of that, the entire process of pitching articles to editors—which, many do not realize, is extremely, extremely selective and difficult—is a challenge that never fails to excite and surprise me. I've met many amazing, wise mentors and contacts through this journey of writing which I certainly will continue in college and beyond.
