Student Testimonial by Sameer Arora
A little voice in my head always said to me, “You can’t write well, so don’t attempt.”
I think my apprehensions about my writing skills and calibre changed after I joined Tanya’s writing program.
From my first assignment, which had multiple corrections to the last piece, which came seamlessly without any errors and a definitive structure was overwhelming. I had tools now that are handy to help me plan my writing well.
I received constructive feedback throughout the programme that has helped me understand the nuances of writing and more so appreciate my ability to write well.
I am looking forward to joining the advanced level course now. Thanks, Tanya for putting my doubts to rest and help me set on a journey of writing.
Sameer wrote the following articles during the writing program:
- I am standing where I was… (An open letter to the society by a teacher)
- Rising above the divide & making a difference
- Because I’m happy!
