I like to paint, write, and read. And when I am not busy getting rid of paint stains from my fingernails and my clothes, I play the guitar and its little sibling, the ukulele. I am a serial book collector, postcard hoarder and letter writer. I enjoy studying so much that I have enrolled myself in a program that pays me to study for 5 years. I will be called a Doctor after finishing it (but I won’t be able to prescribe any medicines). I love art and teaching it to kids and their grandparents, alike. My ma tells me that when I was asked to write ‘a’ for apple, I always drew an apple instead. I enjoy going for a run in the evenings in the greenest part of my city to remind myself of a life beyond screens or books. I also like cycling over puddles and ditches. pia@owliverspost.com
