My motto rings true: ‘Where creativity surpasses expectations’
Hey there! Welcome and thanks for visiting my site.
My name is Carolyn Correia and I am a creative, literary enthusiast. As far back as I can remember, I have always loved expressing myself through the written word.
I also loved to read fiction, non-fiction, psychology and subjects that stimulated my mind with food for thought. Another favourite pastime was listening to my parents entertain us with stories from their life.
As a young child, I often told my Dad that I wanted to change the world in some way, though at the time I didn’t quite know how.
As the ‘lagniappe’ to my parents five kids; most times I found myself a ‘lone ranger’ with lots of free time to myself, due to the large age gap between my siblings and myself.
As a result, I remember probing the answers to the following existential questions at a certain juncture in my childhood, without really knowing why.
I asked myself repeatedly (and sometimes my father): “Why I am here, who created me, who are all these other people around me, is this all a dream?”
Of course I knew the surface answers to these questions, but it was odd that I sought the answers to these questions at that tender age, which many adults never ask themselves throughout their lifetime.
I seldom had those thoughts again… until many years later sporadically.
Many scoffed at the idea of changing the world; then one day it happened…
As I became a published writer; author and now a speaker, I realized that little by little, my childhood dream is happening before my eyes. It still seems surreal.
Honestly it was not easy getting into the field I loved. When I finally did, the obstacle was getting paid for my work. When this happened, the challenge was getting paid commensurately for the time, dedication and passion for my craft.
