Dechool (Donna) Sherwani

I was born in Northern Iraq, Kurdistan, where I lived all my life until coming to Australia almost 8 years ago. I study law in the Victoria University in Melbourne, Australia.

I have experienced war and trauma, and it's this hardship that inspires me to write.  

Even though my whole life has been a broad journey from the year I was born, I still feel like I haven't seen enough. 

There is just something in me that cannot be jailed and so I want to be able to travel the whole entire world and if time permits one day I want to write many books.
