I am an Account Admin (AA). Being organized and punctual is probably one of the most important traits of someone hoping to fulfill this role. Being an Account Admin is not as dull or socially limited as it sounds.
I work from home, which means there are a handful of spaces to occupy and work in and, if one space does not work at one time I can just move to the next. It is nice and quiet at home. Best of all though, no one can complain about me working an entire day in my gown on when cold or rainy.
My type of personality is well suited for admin work, leadership roles and anything else demanding efficiency. So, it’s not a surprise that I started out doing a writing apprenticeship here at INKFISH before I came to take up this position, which I enjoy.
What is the most noteworthy thing you have ever made yourself?
I feel like this is a tough one to answer, considering my age. I have done more noteworthy things than I have made. Apparently, I have produced good pieces of writing, or so the few fans of my work tell me. The general genre I focus on is fiction and I have one novel in progress. I have also created my own short music pieces with my keyboard and, electric and classical guitars. I, rather unfortunately, have the jack of all trades and master of none thing going on. Despite the label though, I am very determined to become the master of most – if not all – of what I love doing.
What unusual place would you like to visit and why?
I have always wanted to visit an area near a place called Cherrapunji, now called Sohra. This place is in Northeast India and is basically a forest. It has rainfall throughout the year and is known to be the wettest place in the world. I’d like to go to this place because of the crazy tree bridges that the locals grow. Yes, I mean the trees themselves act as bridges…it’s hard to imagine so I suggest you check it out too. These fig trees have a specific type of root that locals have manipulated in a particular direction over years and even generations. The other reason why I’d love to visit Sohra is because, if you haven’t guessed already, I am a nature lover.
What is your best hidden talent?
I believe my hidden talent is dancing. All thanks to the inspiring and educational Step Up movies.
If you could get a tattoo on your back, what would it be?
I always thought that if I ever create something as significant as a new language in my novels or if I take a pic of something very strange yet beautiful – like a rare animal – whilst travelling, I would get a tattoo of a small symbol or silhouette of it. I would even consider doing a word in the language or have a detailed tattoo of the creature I had seen.
If you could have any pet in the world, illegal or not, what would you get?
I would like many animals that would be illegal, LOL. I have my suspicions about this question. I would like owls, pandas, tortoises and way more. So, I’ll just start some sort of animal reserve.
What kind of smoothie sounds really good right now?
This is an interesting one, there used to be this gourmet smoothie stand – called Slurp – at my local mall and it never let me down. I feel like I have a very basic pallet. I shy away from some seafood and delicacies made in Cape Town. I wish I could have a caramel cinnamon bun milkshake, or better yet, a botanical flavoured lemon-grass milkshake.
