Ritah was born and raised in Seychelles. The mother of two boys, she has gone back to her childhood dream to work with children. A primary school teacher since 2018, Ritah has previously worked as a central banker for eight years. She has also gone back to another childhood passion of writing. So turning 40 has not just been a celebration of what she has accomplished but also the joy and privilege of reviving her childhood dreams. Taking time to pause, Ritah decided to compile her poems, not just for a book but also a moment to go back, soak in all that has been and appreciate the magic in each step. The book is a gift of celebration. By sharing her journey, the author hopes that each person honours his or her own journey.
