Back To School Book Blogger Challenge Day 1 – Stand up and introduce yourself

Hi bookworms,
So I decided to be a part of the Back to School Challenge, hosted by the amazing Parajunkee!

The First Day Challenge
It’s time to stand up in front of the class and share with the rest of us a little bit about you.

Hello! My name is Anila, and I am 17 years old (I'll be 18 in three months). I lived most of my life in Albania, but with the exception of two years I spent in Italy because of my health concerns.
Even though I am quite bubbly here, and I talk about horror, creatures, and cappuccino all the time... There's much more of me than it meets the eye.
It's been one year since I am a cancer survivor, and truth should be told... Things aren't that easy for me.
I am a strong person, and most importantly I know myself, I know what I am capable of. I refuse to be called a poor ex patient, because I know I am much more.
I am a writer! At the end of September I publish my autobiography in Italian. The book is titled "The Right To Live"
I am a blogger! I know I am not a famous blogger, but I work hard on my posts.
I am a painter! I love painting and digital art as you can tell by the blog design. I made those by myself.
I am Anila, a girl with big dreams and projects, who doesn't let anyone destroy her world.

Have a great day!
Happy Scary Reading!

  2. I love your attitude. We're the same age (my birthday is in October though!) I can tell you're strong just from your introduction. I loveee the background picture for your blog design. It's high contrast which is one of my design loves.

    Anyway, it was cool to meet you and keep doing what you're doing Anila!

  8. Hi darling! Pleased to "meet" you finally :). Where was the pic taken?
    Love the post. Glad that many other people than myself will get the chance to know you better (or meet you for the first time). You sure are worth it (not in a "L'Oreal" way LOL).
    Oops, I've been a bad friend. You know what I mean. I'll do my homework today, I promise.
