Who is Amrita Literature?

I’ve always liked to think of myself as someone who operates “against the grain.” Growing up I was often pegged as an individual who thought myself better than others. On the contrary, I never felt quite good enough. I felt as though I did not have any strengths or talents as others did. I wasn’t comfortable in my own skin and I was socially awkward but that only came across as being “stuck up.” Only in recent years have I grown to be “okay” with myself and believe in who I am enough to express that to the world. That’s what writing is for me – it’s my stream of consciousness here to not only portray who I am to the world but also clarify that to myself as well. 

When your voice is heard and your thoughts are organized and accepted it’s a wonderful thing. My writing is my form of expression and it is what keeps me sane. 

I am not defined by my Psychology degree as I do not use it. I am not defined by my role as a wife as there is so much more to me. I am not defined by being a daughter or daughter-in-law as those roles don’t allow me the freedom to be who I really am. Which being completely honest I am not exactly sure about. However, what I do know is that I am someone who wants to make a change, leave a mark, and be understood – and that is what I aim to do with this blog. Thank you for being a part of that!
