One could say that this site is my own version of emancipation.
There’s something freeing about writing my experiences and my thoughts. Transferring it from my mind and heart, onto paper.
I hope that my words serve as some form of freedom for you, the reader. There’s peace that comes with solidarity. Connecting with someone because of something you share in common, something heartfelt.
I am a black, African, Christian woman under the age of 30. Still navigating my 20s. Weathering life’s experiences and healing from the wounds that came with adolescence.

The purpose of this blog, really, is to let you know that you aren’t alone. My prayer continues to be that anyone who comes across this site will find a piece that they connect with. Something that shows them, “Hey, someone out there gets you.”
This is also a space for me to share parts of me. Parts of my life, in hopes that it inspires you to do something good. Something meaningful.
If you’ve come this far, thank you. I hope you stick around for a while 🙂
