Hello 👋 ladies and gents of the web.

I am a Tunisian 🇹🇳developer who now lives and works in the U.S 🇺🇸 . and I joined this forum because I just finally found a passion for reading/writing. I have actually dreaded reading for the longest time. I even passed all my college classes, and got a 4.0 GPA without opening a single "required" book 📚. I did have a past with writing though. When I was taking French 🇫🇷 classes back home, I used to write very long essays. I did not enjoy it, because I was a perfectionist when it came to doing it. So it drew away a lot of my time and effort. However, the compliments I received from my professors and peers encouraged me to keep doing it. I stopped writing in French when I came to the U.S. After college, I got a steady job as a developer and managed to have some free time. I finally got back to writing. From a very different perspective. I just started off as a technical writer, writing technical articles. I am not sure how good/bad I am doing, since I do not have professors to give me feedback. I joined this forum hoping to make some new friends, connections, and get some feedback and encouragement about ✍️ writing. Here is my Medium profile, where you can find the four articles I wrote throughout my short writing journey: https://medium.com/@marwan.helali01

I hope my introduction to this forum was appropriate. Thank you for allowing me to share with you.

Sincerely,
Mar
