Neha Mishra

When I was little, I had a knack to spin up stories, poems on literally anything, from a butterfly to a fan. With time, the stories started fading. When I became a mother, a plethora of emotions that it brought along, had to be written down. My daughter has been my biggest muse since. She changed my perspective on life. She gave me hope, she gave me ambition. I left my decent corporate job as a software consultant and a technical trainer to be a stay-at-home mother when she turned two. That was the beginning of my new and exciting journey. Once the little one started school, I revived my flair for writing which was long lost due to juggles between home and office. I pen down the myriad of emotions I go through as a parent, as a woman, and as a dreamer. I still spin stories. Some stories for me, some for the world, and a lot more for my little one. I am a freelance content writer too, utilizing the experience I have gained through my professional and personal journey.
