Rio Who?

It’s celebratory in Bengali culture when a baby picks its first object. Mine was a pen. So, being a writer was prophesied.

Copywriting just happened to be of my own volition.

 

Hiya, I’m Riona or Rio. Talking about me makes me uneasy. 

So, here's how we can see if our creative energies match. 

7 truths and a lie. Thank you, Hinge prompt. 

 

  • I almost always write before coffee, blinds drawn. 

  • I’m a massive ad nerd. It’s borderline obsessive. 

  • I’ve been an English Copywriter for 5 years.

  • I’m fluent in 5 languages. 

  • I like looking into the windows of people's homes. 

  • Audio is my favourite platform. 

  • I thrive on restrictions. Budgets. Timelines. Word limits.

  • I am discerning about toilet paper rolls. 

 

Did you catch it? 

Let’s find out if it's meant to be.

And since you made it here, I have a plug:
