I should be thirteen and in high school. I started writing stories. They were amateur but it was my beginning.

My younger sister idolised me at the time. She started first by keeping a diary. I noticed and smiled to myself. I knew, she was trying to do what I do.

Years later, she was wrote a story of about 20 pages. She brought it to me with a lot of enthusiasm. She wanted me to endorse it.
I read it through, though I was bored to death.

I told her, Your story is terrible. I’m sorry. Bene, you can’t be Me. You will never excel at being someone else. You must be You. You are different from me, we are opposites. You will always be the fake version of me, if you try to do the things I do. Be yourself, be original.”

She took my advice. Today, people see her as a gifted person.

She makes hair without being an apprentice anywhere and she does the M.C at children parties effortlessly.

Here’s my point exactly, we already had one Maya Angelou, Martin Luther King, Cheri Lucas etc.

Be yourself.

Be original.
