I must start this post by saying a huge thank you to all for the feedback on my last post: 4 Ways I Stay Motivated Daily! It is now the most viewed post on my blog, one of the reasons being, people can relate to it. We all need motivation, it is what drives us and the four things I shared may sound simple but they go a long way in keeping me grounded. So this week’s post is another relatable one. We all have bad days.  Everyone does including your favourite celebrities, mentors and successful icons. Over the past… View Post

Hello everyone! We will be looking at one of the stumbling blocks that hinder so many young people and that is…people’s opinions!  I’ve wanted to write this post for a week now but I was unsure of how to put it all together in a concise and polite manner.

Last year, I wrote a post on ‘What to do with haters on your success journey?” I feel it’s an important post to refresh on again, this time around with a different angle.

I like this season of the year right up from the Thanksgiving holiday to Christmas and then to New Year’s, it has a central theme of reflection and gratitude… View Post

Hey everyone! I recently watched the “We will Rise” film on Let Girls Learn, Michelle Obama’s initiative for girl’s education. It was amazing! Their stories were so inspiring! The film took us on a journey of Michelle Obama’s trip to Liberia and Morocco along with CNN’s Isha Sesay and actresses Meryl Streep and Freida Piento.
