My name is Suzanne Ushie. I am a twenty five year old woman from Cross River State and a graduate of English and Literary Studies from University of Calabar. Currently, I am a copywriter in an advertising agency in Lagos. I've contributed to elan (nextonsunday) and my dream is to become a well known author. It wouldn't be bad if I am the first Nigerian author to have a number one book on the New York Times Bestseller List. When I am not filling my head with lofty dreams, I like to curl up with a good book, catch up with my girlfriends or Tweet.
