Hello, I'm Gauri*

PORTRAIT%2520PAYAL_edited_edited.jpg

Your writer for the end of the world.

QUARANTINED QUOTES

*My name rhymes with "Sorry". (Wow, that sounds promising).
I grew up in India and brought all 5'3”of me to the other end of the world;
because you have to live a little to write a lot.
I now spend my days writing to make a difference
or just your day.
