Hi! - My name is Maleeka Abbas. I’m a 13 (Nearly 14) Year Old Human with a very strange thing known as a “Visual Impairment.” I was born with a condition called LCA.
To put it simply for you., Reader; I struggle with seeing things from afar, identifying colour(s) & I have Light Sensitivity.
I would say that I’m a very curious person with a flair for coming up with the wildest of ideas & thoughts.
This matches perfectly with my Split Personality. On the one hand, I LOVE Writing, Poetry, Philosophy, Fiction & Fantasy.
On the other hand, I have a Severe Technology Addiction as well as a passion for Science, STEM, Sci-Fi & Video Games
