NOVEMBER WA MEMBER SPOTLIGHT - Paola Fornari
I am Italian and was born on Ukerewe Island in Lake Victoria, Tanzania. I was brought up speaking Italian, English and Swahili, and later learnt French and Spanish, and smatterings of several other languages.
Since I was educated in English, English is the language in which I write, think, dream, do mental arithmetic, swear, and speak to babies and animals.
I have lived in a dozen countries over four continents, and am an expatriate sine patria. In every new posting, my curiosity leads me to explore every corner of my host country, and experience as much ‘real life’ as I can.
My writing career began in 2007, in Uruguay. Since then my travel and lifestyle articles have been widely published in print and online. In Bangladesh I wrote my first full-length book, about my experiences there, and hope to have it published soon.
I recently moved from Bangladesh to Ghana, and look forward to making the most of my experiences here.
