Hello, Everyone! Asya Here!

An introduction to myself and my passion for writing.

Hello there! I am Asya Rakova, a college student at San Jose State University and a student contributor for Saratoga and Los Gatos Patch sites.

Writing is one of my biggest hobbies and I aspire to make the field of music magazine journalism a career someday.

This is my first blog to introduce myself. I will be writing some stories, on occasion with photographs as I am a photographer as well.

I am very excited about this opportunity and feedback is always welcome.

A little about me. I was born in Russia and moved to the United States with my parents and younger sister when I was 4. I try to make a visit back to my homeland every year.

Traveling is a love of mine, and so is studying foreign languages, attending rock concerts, photography, and everything Japan.

I think it's important to watch out for others and yourself, to treat everyone with kindness and compassion, and to stay positive.

I decided first to go into journalism as well as blogging because of my passion for storytelling, being creative with writing, and having a lot to share with the world.

Whether it's family, friends, neighbors, or just about anyone else, I think that from sharing and communicating with each other, we learn very much about others, ourselves, and the world that we live in.

If you would like to get in touch with me, just leave your messages here in the comments. You can also email me at anarakova@yahoo.com.

I would be very happy to correspond with you via email or in the comments.

I also am a freelance writer for a magazine currently in the works at Spartan Magazine Club and am always roaming around for ideas and inspiration.

You can also follow me on Twitter at @anya_rawr.

I hope you have a wonderful rest of your week! Thank you very much for reading this post!
