    You could definitely see your expertise within the work you write. The world hopes for more passionate writers such as you who are not afraid to mention how they believe. At all times follow your heart.

    • Hello@Willy

      14 year olds do not use the term "whipper snapper" and then correct themselves when they have spelled it wrong. Jeeze, grow up already.
