A girl who wants to use the pen as her sword and the paper as her saviour- this is the sentence that I often use for myself. I am a student of B.Sc (Hons) Communication Studies at Punjab University. I wish to pursue journalism as my career and I take ardent interest in anything that is creative and requires some exercising of grey cells. Passionate to become a poet and columnist, my belief is that columnists can play a vital role in raising the morale of the nation and at the same time, inspiring thousands of people who read them. I like reading books related to social sciences and history, writing articles on social issues and playing with kittens.
