The Curve month

  I made a vow to myself that every year in June I have to write at least one personal story. Why June? June is the National Scoliosis awareness month in the USA  but I  have been observing it regardless and I think it is something that can be global. This cause is personal to…

Wanderlust in Wonderland

  That first breathe is everything; It changes everything. When a child is born they often cry and in some cases, they get a little nudge to bring out that cry. That cry is so beautiful maybe even magical and it feeds the euphoria of the people in the room. At that moment as the…

The Not so Awkward Conversations

12/4/2018  I was busy scrolling through my Instagram at 3 a.m enjoying a good laugh from memes when a certain hashtag caught my eye #ifikiewazazi. This is a Swahili phrase to mean “let it get to the parents” or ”make it known to the parents”. The hashtag was a viral campaign that came as a…

‘Shameless Woman’

    Who are you? why are you here? I have struggled with this question and my identity so much because I was given an identity from the moment my gender was revealed. I am a girl, an African girl born into a Christian home and that gave me three different identities and a purpose…

Oh well you have  your morning routine. Basically how you wake up,get ready and leave the house with a coffee…

What keeps you up late at night? Actually what gets you out of bed before the alarm event rings?  She wondered if she was wrong to ask him that. He was in the middle of arguably one very romantic proposal yet that was where her mind was.Wandering off to the fact that he told her…

Bad Hair Life.

What exactly is meant by a bad hair day? I’ve heard that saying so much but I’m yet to figure exactly what it mean. Does it even have anything to do with hair or is it just one of those expressions like ‘got up on the wrong side of the bed’. Oh well…I understood that…

Ticking time bomb

He held her face,firmly yet so gentle, passionately that she could feel the intensity…That rising peaceful tension that bridged them together. She toyed with the curls on his head as she always did.
