Writers Inspiring Change feature book review: Nothing is as it seems
Nothing is as it seems, by Victoria Ichizli-Bartels is an appropriately named short drama about Elizabeth, a young lady who returns to her childhood home in London in the hopes of gaining some closure with her past, only to discover what she never thought was possible. A simple, yet surprising read about a life that took a different road, one that eventually circled back to the beginning, where everything is revealed. This is the type of story that reminds us that we can never assume anything and that if one is willing to see the truth, it is standing there in the broad daylight.

About Victoria Ichizli-Bartels
Victoria Ichizli-Bartels lives her life as if it were a game and never wants to stop playing. Author of "Self-Gamification Happiness Formula," "5 Minute Perseverance Game" and instructor of the online course "Motivate Yourself by Turning Your Life Into Fun Games," Victoria developed self-gamification, an innovative method for approaching your life as games and having fun in the process.
Victoria is a writer with a background in semiconductor physics, electronic engineering (with a Ph.D.), information technology, and business development. While being a non-gamer, Victoria came up with the new term self-gamification, a gameful and playful self-help approach bringing anthropology, kaizen, and gamification based methods together to increase quality of life.
Victoria was born in Moldova, lived in Germany for twelve years, and now lives in Aalborg, Denmark, with her husband and two children.
