My week with Mozfest & Sustain #2018 #London

2018 is coming to an end. For some, it didn’t go quite well. Some would say it went just as good as the last year. But after attending Mozfest, you might find me saying that my 2018 went something like this.

The part where she had to be strong had come for her. This was the part where life had begun just for the eyes of the world whereas, for her, life began a long time ago. She believed a part of her had meant to be hidden, as secrecy had become the new cool. While others kept their friend’s secret to maintain that precious bond, she kept hers.
