I set my freelance writing journey on fire in Jan 2021. Throughout my endeavors, the niches I fancied writing about sum up to three. They’re: Fitness & Lifestyle, Showbiz & Entertainment, and last but never the least, Personal Finance. In my leisure time, I enjoy either hitting the gym or diving deep into the abyss of best-seller books.
