The above graphic novel gives a sneak-peek of my literacy journey. The reason I moved to and stayed in so many places is because of my father. He has a highly transferable job. This was a very positive thing for me. I got the live in many countries, meet people from different backgrounds and learn a lot of new things.
It started when I was born In India. I was born in a part of India where the local language wasn’t my mother tongue.
