As of August 28th, I am back in the US. As of August 31st, I am officially part of the Wattpad Stars program! Over a year of hard work, determination, and consistency has paid off. When I got the email that I’d been invited, I couldn’t stop jumping up and down — my mom was home with me and I’m sure it was very annoying to listen to me chatter on about my excitement, but she listened like a champ (she is, after all, my #1 fan). Honestly, I can’t stop looking at the bright orange badge on my profile. I’m thrilled with this development, and I can’t wait to see where it leads.
