  1. Hi Shabnam! I can’t wait to see your first posts!

  2. My amazing friend, I am so proud of you. I am quite impressed with your first post and this is the part that stuck with me in particular: “It makes me particularly happy when I see how good can come out of bad and sad. Duality of life!”
    Cannot wait to read the future posts and in a couple years, the memoir.
    Love you!
