Amani Al Riyami,
A Freelance Writer.
With A Passion For Storytelling.
Even with my love for writing, I grew up in an environment where a fictional writer didn’t meet the standards of a proper career path. On lookers saw it as untraditional, and therefore unacceptable.
But with age and confidence, I came to the conclusion that it didn’t matter how unorthodox something was.
So long as I was writing; there was never a dull moment of submerging into a story idea and bringing it to life. I learnt to pursue what granted me joy, even if it didn’t meet the expectations of those around me.
And with time, I ceased to care about what people thought was the standard, and learnt to create my own standards.
