Anca Mihaela Bruma
My name is Anca Mihaela Bruma, I am Romanian living in Dubai/UAE.
My love for poetry started when I was just 9 years old, when I
registered myself to some creative poetry writing group. It was a
turning point for me as I started to discover the mysteries of the
written word and its impact on the readers.

I am more of a hobby photographer, not necessarily professional as
of right now. I am taking classes to finish my Photography Certificate
of Completion from Mount Royal. I am always loved photography,
whether it was taking pictures or just going through picture after picture
of other photographer's photos. I love taking photographs and learning
about how to do it well and more creatively.
