How i started
Winnie started writing when she was only eleven years in her primary six in search of a safe place to express herself in a way she couldn’t with anyone else since she was a very shy girl who always kept to herself. However, she started her social media presence in 2012 on Facebook with a sole intention to just have that one easy location online where she could share short inspiring messages in form of poetry. Little did she know that this simple gesture got many people interested thus compelled her to do something bigger than just posting on Facebook.
