My name is Nailah (Ny-ee-luh), and I'm a Los Angeles-bred ESL teacher with a mission to save the world from bad grammar. Just kidding! (But not really). I do, however, have a passion for writing and teaching—to name a few—and I thought this website would be a perfect way to provide valuable educational content. *Introducing N.HARV*
Launched in 2010 as The Miscellaneous Files, my failed attempts at blogging drove me back to the drawing board. I thought people wouldn't want to read about my quirky life and obsession with books, so I hid this part of me and blogged about fashion and entertainment. It was fun, but it wasn't my purpose...and people could tell! I blogged aimlessly and inconsistently for years because I didn't know my niche.
...but not for too long.
Life changed for me after I taught and lived overseas in South Korea in 2012. It was there that I wrote my first book—which woke up the creative, entrepreneurial side of me. Since 2013, I’ve self-published at least one book per year on Amazon.com. Once I started writing, I couldn't stop. Divinely, I discovered my purpose in 2015: teaching, writing, and serving.
I am in no way an expert writer. I strongly believe in human editors and editing software, but I do know a few things. If you want grammar and writing tips without browsing the internet, then you’ve come to the right place!
It literally took me 5 years to find my niche and be comfortable in my creative skin. Now, I want to help other authors, bloggers, and social media enthusiasts (and anyone else) be comfortable in their creative skin and look better in writing!
Here’s the short version of my About Me page:
• I’m quirky, artsy, and complicated…but I’m simple. (See what I’m saying?!)
• I’m a Christian
• I love to travel to new places & compare them to my hometown: Los Angeles
• I’ve written & self-published 6 books to date
• I like to buy red velvet cupcakes from different bakeries across the U.S. & I call it the "Red Velvet Tour”
• I'm an expert at re-runs of the T.V. show Friends
• Turning 30 was the best thing that could’ve happened to my confidence
Thank you for visiting N.HARV where my goal is to inspire people to look better in writing!
I hope you appreciate my particular brand of eccentricity!
