Glamour (South Africa) - - Mailbag - – Anisa Singh, via email

“Af­ter two failed at­tempts at study­ing and sev­eral dead-end jobs, I felt lost and con­fused about what I wanted to be. The cat­a­lyst for change was the death of my beloved grand­mother. I de­cided that I needed to take charge of my life. I re­called the last day of school when my English teacher made me prom­ise that I would write one day, and it dawned on me that writ­ing was my true call­ing. The ar­ti­cle, ‘What anx­i­ety re­ally feels like’ (May ’17), re­minded me that I’m in con­trol of my des­tiny and it’s never too late to make a change. I’m now liv­ing my best life. I know I’ll be an in­spi­ra­tion to my daugh­ter some day. Thanks for an in­spi­ra­tional read. You rock!”
