“After my first book was published I completely was of the view that I will focus on my studies but one night I saw a dream that I am holding a book in my hands and people in thousands were applauding for me and this changed my mind to continue my writing skills” says Nida.
My sister told me that you should write a book which should be helpful to students and I thought of writing properties of elements in a way so that it will be easy for students to remember it and finally Bigfoot publications in Haryana approved my book titled “The Davy” on 26th July, 2020.
