Hi, I’m Joy Adan. I’m a freelance writer, based in Sydney, Australia. This is my blog.
I’ve been on the blogosphere for over ten years, and writing since I was given my first journal (a white, hard-cover A6 diary with a brass lock and key) at the age of 6. I’ve penned (and typed) hundreds of thousands of words for both business and leisure, and this blog is just one of many creative outlets.
I write because I believe in the power of stories. A great story opens minds and transforms hearts. A great story fuels learning and inspires action. A great story turns an everyday meal into a lifelong memory. Our lives, our histories and our cultures are a collection of these stories.
It’s my goal, as a writer, to capture these stories and share them. Some of the stories you find here are mine, some are about the people I’ve encountered who have helped me discover something precious. As you read these posts, I hope you find something precious too. Whether it’s encouragement, entertainment, education or empathy, if you find it I hope you share it and create a great story of your own.
