Faustina says, “I see writing stories as a calling. I started making up stories at the age of 6. Then, I would make up stories and tell my siblings unending as they laugh and laugh. Then my attention was diverted when I went on with Nursing . Thankfully, I finally found myself back here where I belong. Writing is like my get away especially children’s story as I still feel inside like a child. I haven’t really grown past 12 years in my mind.”
