Hi, I’m Debbie! A writer (poet and lyricist) currently working on an EP and a chapbook. I enjoy a lot of things asides writing, and usually I spend time reading my Bible, philosophy, Greek mythologies, famous artists, etc. With a vision to change the world with words, I know deeply it requires a lot of effort (and time of course!), but eventually, I believe things would change for the better. I do wish for your support on this journey. Thank you.
