Hi guys, my name is Sharon. I get my info from English, French and Chinese websites because I can read (almost) all three languages. However since English is my first language, my posts are often from a Western perspective.

History is different in the eye of the beholder and if there are any of you who are literate in other languages and are willing to contribute to this blog please message me! Together I believe we can create a much more rounded perspective on history.
