Hello everyone!! My username is Albanafsagia, but you can call me Alba. I'm 23 years old and I primarily write poetry, but I enjoy writing novels, too. I'm a quote addict--I see a quote and memorize it instantly. It's weird--my memory is pretty good. I use quotes at appropriate moments, which is always good fun. In addition, another interesting thing about me is that I speak seven languages. I'm interested in issues concerning World Problems, News, Diversity, Oppression, Discrimination, Women's Rights, Freedom, and Justice. I am a deaf American woman, engaged to a man from Saudi Arabia.
