Maitreyee Shrivastava (pen name: ‘Aarzoo’) is a 17-year-old emerging author and a perfect example of a will power so valiant that didn’t let the world get to her as she paved her way through difficulties.
The world of an author is different from everyone as a part of them is engraved onto the slick pieces of paper as they ink down their vulnerabilities for the world to see they’re not perfect. That they’ve got scars similar to yours.
Maitreyee’s poetries provide the comfort a reader seeks and the feeling of being understood making them see that they’re not alone.
There’s a Latin phrase- ‘ad astra per aspera’ which litreally means “through hardships to the stars”. The neglect you face teaches you to stop expecting, to stop thinking that you’ve got someone to rely on. And to start believing that you are the only one you’ve got.
This sad reality of life which dawns upon a lot of people at a very young age leaving them broken and gutted down in dumps and before they realize they’re already drowning in self-pity.
A similar account of events that went and stuck her world, but she didn’t let it frame her destiny. No matter how much the circumstances broke her, she was determined to write her own world.
And Maitreyee ever so proudly did so.
