I wrote a blog — you should too!

I never fancied a wedding too much growing up — I was kind of a tomboy. I liked being outdoors and playing in the dirt, rain, snow. In my mind, there wasn’t anyone to impress. I thought boys will just be boys, and I’m going to do whatever. I loved wearing plain T-shirts and shorts, and the one pair of sneakers I had probably since I was in 3rd grade. I was head over heels for a ferocious game of tag with friends that would go until dinner time. I loved the…

Hobbit Girl

If you haven’t read my last article Life as Hobbit Girl, stop everything you are doing, go read it, then come back here. Hobbit Girl is now on a quest to find how she can be as pretty as Christy, a beautiful woman with long black hair, a white smile, and an acne-free face. I honestly hope Christy doesn’t mind Hobbit Girl, but they could be very good friends one day. Does Hobbit Girl use her environment to find the secrets to becoming a more beautiful girl? Does she leave her…


Some Blog Challenge (not counting anymore)

What could her name be?

“In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hold, and that means comfort.”

I’ve been underground yall. During quarantine, I’ve thought about a number of imaginary places that could be very interesting to escape to. What better place than a hobbit-hole? Honestly, I’m dreaming of Middle-Earth. I wouldn’t mind living in a luxurious underground house…

Unhealthy Habit #1: Procrastination. In college, I convinced my professors to give us an extra week to submit writing assignments. My argument went something like this, “I really am a deep thinker. I need some time to go through the material, jot down some ideas, really think about what I’m trying to say. This takes me a couple of days. Then, I will try to outline this and have a thesis, and then I’ll have my first draft ready. Do you want to take a look at it then?” By the time I was done explaining, my…


30 Day Challenge

Usually, the busiest month of the year is May. I have my biggest work event, where we bring together an audience of 350+ philanthropists, business executives, philanthropists, community leaders, and others interested in supporting nonprofits in greater Boston. With social distance measures in place, all of my events moved to a virtual platform. Though my job is secured, for now, I know it isn’t the case for everyone. Many of my close friends aren’t able to find jobs (which I hope you all do, very soon!). I also know how challenging it must be for parents who…

Pet Peeve #1: Okay, so I know in my previous post I mentioned phones. I guess I’m having a dilemma that I am unaware of, but my boyfriend’s new phone charger is one of my biggest pet peeves. He’s really into technology (I don’t know what guy isn’t), but this one is ridiculous. The phone device swings in mid-air -and as it free falls - it makes a squeaky sound. The crazy part about all of this is that I don’t even know what this freakish thing is called or where he bought it from (Amazon, if…


30-Day Blog Challenge

To my parents, if you ever read this, I fell in love when I was 12-years old. I mean, I could have been asking you for money to go shopping, but instead… my eyes were fixated on this one boy. He had the most beautiful light green eyes, light brown skin, pearly whites, and can you believe his ears were pierced!?! We hung out every day after school in the park, and somedays he would walk me home. I honestly thought I had found my forever love. …

Problem #1: If real life is actually boring, then don’t worry! Social media is just as real as Earth - where you and your friends, and ‘strangers’ can actually have the most meaningful conversations. You’ll occasionally get the random messages from followers who are so desperately waiting for you to respond. Some of them think you haven’t seen the message, but your actually unbothered because there are more important people you would rather talk to. Like…Goodbye! Even with all of these followers, you somehow remember that none of these so-called ‘soul friendships’ exist on Earth. …


Why I’m choosing to write incessantly

It’s been a very long time since I have written on my blog. I want to take a moment and apologize — as many of you were right beside me, encouraging me to keep writing. I’m a full-time communication professional so that it can be a bit repetitive writing for both mediums. Before I had my job, I was involved in an art project of my own, called Embrace Women In Art. I reached out to a couple of my closest friends, interviewed them, and shared their stories. I’ve always been in search of…


Texture is telling of differences and similarities. It gives us hope, a comfort of knowing, and at times may revive past chaos. Its distinguishing features define our beauty standards. Hair is a perfect example. Hair — the thread like strand that grows on people and animals — tells the story of all wild haired children. I too am a wild hair child.

Straight Roots

Beauty comes from your roots. Hair norms are passed down from one generation to another. For women of color, we have lost touch with our roots. Our hair narrative now includes a straight strand — one that completely…
