I’m Maria Diment

An ambitious creative is what I am. Since picking up my first book as a toddler, I've read and written my way to where I am today; an aspiring writer, journalist and blogger. I was born into this fresh era of tech-savvy kids in 2001 and spent my early childhood in several cities across Canada. My family settled in Vancouver's suburbs, a cozy place I can call home. Graduating from Pinetree Secondary School, I moved on to something better: Broadcast and Online Journalism at BCIT.

Dreamers never stop dreaming. I've learned this as I grew up, seeing my little daydreams come and go and some evolving into grand plans and ambitious life goals. My dreams have brought me here– to BCIT. I aspire to be a blogger, writer, and journalist and to let my writing talent and passion guide me to a wonderful career.

In life, every person has their calling. Mine began as a faint whisper; a liking for creative writing from a young age. I would write creative short stories and, later, poetry. I was born with a fascination for words and a vision flooded with symbolism and metaphors, all of which keeps my pen scribbling. Over the past several years, I've started and continue to write a poetry book and other short stories, wrote for my highschool newspaper and BCIT's Link Magazine, and continue to write to this day. As I matured, my calling became clearer and more vivid. Upon entering BCIT, I've embarked on a journey (with my pen and paper in hand of course) to take my writing further into blogging and journalism.
