Pieces of Paper.

I remember that as a kid I would always scribble down notes on pieces of paper or in a notebook,  wherever I could. I have a fond memory of myself and my older brother one night when the power was out and all we had for light was the glow from a lit candle. It…

A Poem

I must say that I have been blessed with amazing people in my life, who at every point, through every struggle, in moments of joy and periods of tribulations have always reminded me of God and have always found their own special ways of uplifting my spirit. I have been blessed with friends who, if…

Independent… To Be or Not To Be?

Long time no post aye? Seems so, considering all that's happened since the last time. I might have started my growth Journal over a year ago but the real growth only just started months ago. Through most of my life I dreamed of being a grown-up, I'd play my life out in my mind, what…

A Date with Inspiration 

I'd spent the entire week thinking about this quote "Empowered Women, Empower Women" and anticipating the YALI Abuja Face-to-face meeting coming up on Saturday.

Who I Am

This is who I am Timid with a touch of talkative. I'm ready to curl back into my shell soon as I start to get shot by daggers from the words I utter. Most times I won't even say anything.... For fear of daggers Fearful with a spark of strength. I'm scared to bare my…

To the one that got away..

Not sure if you're the one that got away coz it seems I'm the one who ran away. Either way, we loved and we fought and we healed as passionately as true lovers do. I'm happy to have known you, to have been with you, shared memories of love and joy with you. I won't…

Growth Journal… The Recap

At the beginning of the year I started a page called the Growth  Journal where I hoped to document everyday of growth, dreams and everything in between I failed at it. The why is pretty simple. I had to go through a little something called the Bar Part 2 Programme at the Nigerian Law School.…
