My name is Zylah Petrona.

This is my storySnapchat-575204732871373950


I was born in Curaçao, a lovely island in the Caribbean. My love for reading began when I was very young. 


When I was about ten years old, my sister gave me a diary. And that’s when my love for writing emerged. I discovered, later on, that I get to know myself better when I’m writing about my emotions and thoughts. I like to be creative and I write down fictions as well.

I want to bring something original and fun to the table. So, I invented the word ‘smaryolize’. I often think about a lot of unique theories and interesting subjects. I will share all of it with you on my blog.

I have a master’s degree in Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology. I find psychology very interesting in general therefore it forms the basis of my blog.

 I hope you enjoy !
