The above picture captures the goal of my writing. I develop a picture of myself composed of my words. That is right, you read correctly. My words, not your words, not their words, but my words control my image. My stories tell the world who I am. Since I am a part of the world I too will form a view about who I am by what I say to myself. I will not let other people tell me who I am. Instead I will actively choose my identity and mold it as I see fit. I am my story and I am the author. Now that is empowerment.
