Daniel Oberko is a writer and a published author. Experienced in writing poetry and Non-fiction stories. My maiden book, Finding Your Purpose, was published in 2012. My experiences in some countries in Africa and other parts of the world add to the ingredients of my writings, providing it with a unique posture and enforcement. What I write is a reflection of the various aspect of my life as I see, hear, think and experience. As an author I have come to realize that there is no point limiting yourself in what you write. As long as you think it, write it. At the end of the day, someone will be impacted by what you write. That is the essence and purpose of the writer.
