As I have mentioned in a previous post (http://www.voicesofyouth.org/en/posts/the-terrorist-s-daughter---2) I have been quite fond of reading from the very early days of my life. As a kid, I would often find a book, lay down on the floor and make myself comfortable, and I could go on like this for hours. Until I was about 10 years old, my English was quite bad and I read only the Sinhala books I could get my hands on. Things changed when I found two excellent English teachers in the...

Bonjour! :) I have been quite busy physically, morally and psychologically with numerous events occurring in my life lately. I have read, witnessed, realised, wondered, thought, learnt and done a lot. I realise that my life is, indeed, a wealthy one in its own way and I give thanks for everything Life gives to me.

Some of her notable projects include recent work for The Kitchen Guardian and Green August which ended up being sold on DFTBA. Your name Mei Lee. Your age23 Where a...
