My 20th article
An open letter
As this is my 20th (published) article, I wanted it to be something special. I pondered on special themes and commemorative titles. What I decided to do was to speak directly from my heart. It does not get sappier than that.
To Medium.com, thank you for opening your forum to me. The past two months here have been wonderful. As a developing and professional writer, your site has been instrumental in helping me with perfecting my craft. My hope is that someday you open the partnership program to more countries. You are depriving yourself of many talented writers and articles by being restricted.
The fellow writers that I have met and interacted with are utterly amazing. The insights they provide are priceless. Thank you to my 324 followers who provide support and encouragement. Special thanks to my biggest fan, Jan Sebastian, who makes me feel like a rock star. Also, special thanks to Dr Mehmet Yildiz who graciously allowed me to be published in Illumination. Your foresight and commitment to assisting fellow writers is admirable.
There is so much to learn here on Medium. The vast array of opinions and skills from everyone here has opened the world to me, especially during this period of restricted travel. I cannot wait to see what lies ahead.
