If in the past I casually and somewhat arrogantly said that I chose my profession, in reality, writing not only chose me but also continuously saved me in nearly every stage of my life. I was a ‘special’ kid; I was born (or not) with stuttering, a condition that places you on the edge between a child with special needs and normalcy. Stuttering is a form of speech impediment that doesn’t always allow for coherent speech and significantly hampers communication and the formation of dialogue.
This condition made it much easier for me to express myself in writing, to have a unique sensitivity when it comes to the words I use and hear, and to find refuge among the pages of journals I used to write. I grew up with this affinity, unsure of what to do with it next. Only after finishing high school, after exhausting all attempts to choose a profession, did I realize that words were all I had left, and they would take me somewhere, someday.
Although tempted to say it was a rather wavering path, looking back, I realize that every small decision brought me here and that my love for communication, words, and writing nurtured me, refined me, and shaped my way of seeing life. That same perspective that brought this business to life in 2020.
