sophiat saka

My name is Saka Sophiat Oreoluwa. I am a fresh English Language graduate of Obafemi Awolowo University. Thanks to a few internships at broadcasting organizations and a freelance writing career, I have 2 years of experience in communication and content creation. As regards writing, I am interested in writing about relationships, self-development and Korean dramas. Seeking closure in my first relationship made me realize that I had a lot to learn about the area. I started reading up on it and so far, I have written a few articles in the niche.

Everyone always has room for improvement. No one ever masters a skill, an art or a career perfectly. I want my articles to be that friendly source that will enlighten them on the steps they need to take to achieve self-actualization. Even though I have never written an article on it, I would love to try it out. What do I do for fun? Korean dramas. Apart from reading novels, they are another means by which I escape from reality. I am interested in creating articles that explore the ideas in K-dramas and real-life personalities of actors.
