About D a l e e l a h
Daleelah Saleh is a sophomore at the Baccalaureate School for Global Education. She is in GWN first and foremost because she adores writing from the bottom of her heart. Perhaps more importantly, because she has finally reached a point at which she's realized that her voice is powerful, and that she wants to use her words to make positive change. At the moment, her favorite genres to write in are poetry and flash fiction, and genres she loves reading are magical realism, fantasy, and memoir. When she is not writing or reading, she can be found playing guitar, taking photos, or baking. Her favorite quote is “When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it” -Paulo Coehlo, The Alchemist.
