My first attraction to literature was as a child, when I had a notebook to translate music that I liked. First, through songs, and later through poetry and books, I have found in literature my own space, "a place where I can go when I feel low, when I feel blue".

I have attended various literary courses in which I translated short stories, poems, songs and haikus, and I'm now translating independent fiction authors professionally, with my first translated book soon to be published.
