I catch the pattern Of your silence Before you speak I do not need To hear a word In your silence Every tone I seek Is heard by Langston Hughes I used to think my mom was invalidating my feelings when she’d tell me to be silent after telling her about a heated argument I had…

Lie to me and tell me you don’t care about your skin and that it doesn’t affect your confidence, please – I’m waiting patiently for you to lie to me. “I regret taking such good care of my skin” – said no one ever. I don’t care what you say, your skin affects your self-confidence…

Okay so, for this piece I’m joined by my Nyani who is sister and friend, who also happens to be a writer. We were all together as sisters this past holiday and we got to talking about relationships and what we want out of them. We’re all very single and we’re just navigating through self-worth…

It’s difficult to explain to people how I feel when even I don’t know how I feel, it’s even more difficult to explain anxiety when you don’t know why you’re anxious. I get that everyone feels anxious once in a while, it’s normal. People get anxious because of a test they have to write or…

Who am I? What sets me apart from every other person? I don’t think people often take their time thinking about how important these two questions really are. Knowing who you are and what your brand stands for is very important. Each of us is a brand and we all stand for something bigger than…
