Sweet Designs Featured Writer

Age 18, United Arab Emirates

Joined the SDM Team: August 2009

Why I Write for SDM: I write for Sweet Designs Magazine because I want people to read and comment on what I write, so that I can learn and grow as a writer.

Activities, Sports, Interests: I'm a jack of all trades, but master of none. I'm also a voracious reader.

Favorite Authors: JRR Tolkien, Philip Pullman, Stieg Larsson, JK Rowling, Jhumpa Lahiri, Jeffrey Archer, Erich Segal, Rick Riordan, and many, many more.

Favorite School Subjects: English. To some extent, Economics as well.

Favorite Movies: I love the Lord of the Rings trilogy, the Pirates of the Caribbean, and the X-Men series.

Favorite TV Shows: My favourite TV shows are Castle, White Collar, How I Met Your Mother, and Burn Notice. No, I do not want Castle and Beckett to get together. It would just ruin the show.

I listen to: U2, Coldplay, Goo Goo Dolls, The Script, Robbie Williams, The Beatles, Nickelback, and Cheap Trick. I like a lot of songs from other artists as well, but these artists dominate my music library.

Most Important Values: Respect the privacy of other people.

I enjoy: Conversing with people. Apart from a good book, there is nothing more invigorating than a good conversation.

Future Plans: I wish to be a journalist, amongst other things.
