LIFESTYLE: "Get To Know Me" Blogger Tag

Hello friends,

I've had this blog for a little over a year now and although you can probably get a sense of my interests through my posts, I realized I never did a formal "Get to Know Me" Post. So I thought it would be fun to share a few details about me and start a Get To Know Me Blogger Tag running amongst some of the bloggers I know/follow. Shall we begin?

1. Where were you born and Where did you grow up?

- I was born in Queens, New York but grew up in Baltimore, Maryland in a very Nigerian household.

2. Where do you currently live?

- I still live in Maryland. For the past four years, I have been living in College Park due to school but now that I have graduated I will be returning back to Baltimore after the summer.

3. Do you have any siblings? If so, how many?

- Yes, I am the oldest of five children. I have 3 brothers and 1 sister.

4. How tall are you?

- I stand at 5'9.5 - 5'10.

5. Describe yourself in 5 words.

- Creative, Friendly, Performative/"Dramatic", Adventurous, Ambitious.

6. Do you speak another language? If so, what?

- I do not speak another language fluently, I have two native tongues --Yoruba and Igbo. Unfortunately, I can only understand Yoruba and speak a bit. I am working on it though!

7. Who is your best friend?

- I actually don't keep or believe in best friends. I prefer the term close friends and I have a number of them who I love dearly.

8. What sports do you play or have you played?

- I don't play any sports at the moment. In high school, I played badminton, did cheerleading and ran track +field. In college, I tried Rugby for a bit.

9. What is your go-to hairstyle?

- Braids. Very easy to maintain and versatile.

10. What's your biggest challenge as a blogger?

- I've noticed that I am blogging during a time where a lot of people do not like to read or don't have the patience for it so it makes things a little difficult and can sometimes be discouraging. (I'm still gonna do it tho!)

11. How would you describe your fashion sense?

- This is a bit of a tricky one because as of late, I haven't been 100% comfortable with the clothes I have been wearing, so it's something I am still exploring. I typically like to be in something laid back and relaxed but I do have my moments when I want to be in full glam.

12. What's your favorite song?

- My favorite song right now is Poundshop Kardashians and Greasy Spoon by Sam Fender. Been listening to him a lot lately and I am very excited for his upcoming album. The man has something to say.

13. Twitter or Instagram?

- It changes all the time but right now Instagram.

14. 3 Social Media Influencers who you are loving right now?

- Milena Ciciotti (Lifestyle & Christian YouTuber), Justin Escalona (Entrepreneur + YouTuber), and Kenzie Elizabeth (Lifestyle Vlogger + Podcaster).

15. Favorite thing to do in your free time?

19. Biggest struggle you have had to overcome?

- When my parents got divorced, that was a huge shift in my life and family dynamic. Definitely shaped me into who I am today.

20. If you can live anywhere in the world where would it be?

- I would live Part-time in London & in the United States and spend my summers in Italy.

21. Describe a perfect summer.

- My perfect summer would consist of a balance of day-time outings with my friends, (happy hours, baseball games, discovering new spots within the city etc.), traveling, a steady flow of income, and Afrobeats artists dropping gems like there's no tomorrow.

22. One thing you are proud of?

- Making the active choice to pursue the performing arts as an actor, director, writer and cinematographer. It was so hard coming to terms with this-- especially the acting bit.

21. Are you working or are you in school? If so, what do you study/what is your profession?

- No longer a student but I will be returning to get my masters very soon. I don't have a profession yet, just graduated so I'm job searching.

22. Best concert experience?

- My best concert experience was actually the first time I went to a concert solo. An Irish artist named EDEN came to Baltimore in October of 2018. It was perfect timing because I had just discovered his music a week prior to the concert and instantly fell in love. You should give him a listen.

23. What are you looking forward to in the next few months?

- Expanding my network, growing my brand and business and honing my artistic abilities.

24. Three travel destinations on your bucket list.

- Budapest, Spain, and Amalfi Coast.

25. Tell us one thing about you that we wouldn’t know?

- I dislike spicy food, love period dramas and I did some background work as a Handmaid on the show The Handmaid's Tale (S3 E6) back in February.

Hope you enjoyed this post! I am interested to know about you all so comment a fact about yourself down below! Also, tag/share with 3 bloggers that you want to see answer these questions.

Much Love,
