    You can read the first half of WIN on Wattpad, and the rest of the book is still being written С I hope to be done by the end of May, but no promises due to my health issues.

    Dear Marina,My name is Neela Arjoon. It was nice meeting you at the GOPIO event in Queens last Saturday. I spoke with my colleagues and they were all excited about inviting you to visit our school in the Bronx and speaking with our middle school students about your work.I really hope you can say yes and then we can work out the details.
